Winchester Festival: Terry Waite

Winchester Guildhall

Solitude

In the 1980s, Terry Waite was the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Assistant for Anglican Communion Affairs under Robert Runcie, and devoted himself to the task of securing the release of John McCarthy and his fellow Lebanon
hostages.

In January 1987 he was kidnapped himself in Beirut and held for five years, four in solitary confinement. During his time in captivity, Terry kept mentally alive by writing in his head. In this talk, he will discuss this process and the power of solitude in his own and other people’s lives.

This event is sponsored by Shentons Solicitors and Mediators.

Tickets: £15 available from the Cathedral Box Office and online from 18 May.
