Please note due to filming schedules, Juliet Stevenson is no longer able to fulfil her commitment to the King’s Lynn Festival.  We are delighted that Niamh Cusack will be joining Rowan Williams and Guy Johnston for this event instead.  Niamh comes from a well-known acting family and haw worked extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre.  She is perhaps best known for her long-running role as Dr Kate Rowan in the ITV series Heartbeat.
