More recently he has been seen by television audiences as Walter Steele on US drama series Arrow and General Coburn on 24: Live Another Day, a limited series based on Fox network's hit TV series, 24.

He will be after dinner guest speaker at the ball which will take place in the Minster on July 13.

A 3-course silver service dinner will be served right under the tower in the historic Minster, with a bar serving soft drinks and a range of wines including prosecco.

The Summer Dinner raises money for restoration and conservation projects at the Minster with all profits from the evening going towards the new toilets and refreshment facilities for the building.

The dress code is ‘relaxed smart’ - and you do not need to be part of the Minster congregation to attend.

Places for the event are £37.50 and can be booked via [email protected] or on 01302 323748
