Harriet Walter has been named patron of Nuffield Southampton Theatres.

The theatre company has also appointed singer Craig David as a patron. Both will work alongside existing patrons Samantha Bond, Laura Carmichael, Tom Hiddleston and Celia Imrie.

As patrons of Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Walter and David will support the upcoming season of work as well as the launch of the brand-new theatre, NST City.

Nuffield Southampton Theatres director Samuel Hodges said: “They both bring extensive and diverse experience from across the arts making them the perfect pairing to join our team. We have an exciting year ahead of us. I’m thrilled to welcome Harriet and David’s support ahead of our upcoming season that marks a big leap forward for NST and for the cultural landscape of Southampton.”
