Kenneth Branagh named as Theatre Patron
Kenneth Branagh has been named as patron of the Progress Theatre in Reading, where he started his career.
It's the theatre the Oscar nominated actor joined as a teenager, after moving to Berkshire from Northern Ireland. He's said he is thrilled:
"I am delighted to be appointed as a Patron of the Progress Theatre in Reading. I relocated to Reading at the age of 9 from Belfast and my stage career started at the Progress when I was a teenager. Next year the theatre celebrates its 65th anniversary and continues to maintain a quality of production that remains second-to-none.”
The actor and director is known for his Shakespeare adaptations and the theatre is running its own open air Shakespeare festival this summer.
