Adrian and Bridget Plass joined by Dave Bilbrough for Liverpool Cathedral show

Author and speaker Adrian Plass is to host the show Riding the Storm at Liverpool Cathedral on 20 March, joined by his wife Bridget and guitarist Dave Bilbrough.

Adrian (pictured with Bridget, right) has produced more than 35 books in the last 20 years, the best known of which - The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass - has sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide and presents a gentle satire on the modern Church. A popular speaker, his live presentations combine humour, poetry, and storytelling – largely revolving around his own inadequacies and struggles as a Christian and a human being.

Bridget’s inclusion in the show allows for a more varied and dramatic style of performance. The couple met at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. 

Dave Bilbrough (right) is recognised as one of Britain’s foremost worship leaders and songwriters. With a wide appeal that spans all Christian denominations and networks, songs such as Abba Father, All Hail the Lamb, I am a New Creation, Sound the Trumpet, Holy Ground, How Wonderful and Let there be Love have been a staple part of many a church’s repertoire. Dave draws on folk roots and world music influences.

The event is in aid of the Sailors’ Society, managed by Sailors’ Beneficial Enterprises Ltd. The Sailors’ Society raises the awareness of the importance of merchant seafarers to the community.

Riding the Storm is part of a national tour and takes place at Liverpool Cathedral on Wednesday 20 March 2013.  Doors open at 7pm. Tickets from 01903 705 360 or  Standard: £12 (advance) £14 (on the door).
