Former Telegraph reviewer Tim Walker has been appointed theatre critic at pro-EU newspaper the New European.

Walker has already resurrected his Mandrake column for the newspaper, and his first theatre review will be published this week.

He said the position meant he had now reinstated the two roles he lost when leaving the Telegraph three years ago.

He told The Stage: “So far as I can see, the theatrical community is resolutely against Brexit. Andrew Lloyd Webber, in particular, has made it clear this is no time to bring down the curtain on Britain’s leading role in Europe.”

He added: “A theatre column is therefore a natural fit for the New European which has never just been about Brexit: like all Europeans, it has a broad range of interests and it appreciates culture.”

His first review will be Long Day’s Journey Into Night, to be published on Thursday.
