Treading the Boards with Faith, Pub Talk with Alex Macqueen 30.04.24

The Catholic Union’s next “Pub Talk” will take place on Tuesday 30 April with acclaimed BAFTA nominated actor and writer Alex Macqueen. The event is kindly sponsored by the Universe Catholic Weekly.

Alex is rarely off our screens, small and big, and has appeared in The Inbetweeners, Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey to name but a few.  He has kindly agreed to talk to the Catholic Union about being a Catholic in the acting world.

The Pub Talk will take place in the upstairs room of the Windsor Castle pub on Francis Street, behind Westminster Cathedral. It will commence at 6.00pm and will be free to attend, but you are advised to book early as tickets will be limited.

The Catholic Union’s “Pub Talk” events are aimed at people with a background or interest in politics and public affairs but are open to everyone. The events provide an informal opportunity for networking and discussion, and the chance to hear from a guest speaker.

Alex Macqueen comments: I’m really looking forward to chatting about the making of “The Thick Of It” and my eccentric foray into politics as the Rt Hon The Lord Nicholson of Arnage CBE! It’ll be a great opportunity to reflect on what it lampooned at the time and what it foreshadowed, especially in the current climate”.

Catholic Union, Director, Nigel Parker, comments: We’re delighted that Alex has agreed to join us for this talk. The Catholic Union has been focusing on faith in the workplace, indeed this will be a large part of the Catholic Union’s Catholic Manifesto in advance of the General Election and it will be very interesting to see what insights Alex can share with us.”
