Theatre and football are not normally two activities you would necessarily put together but the Kings Theatre and Portsmouth Football Club are very excited about bringing together synergies of two iconic Portsmouth attractions.

Armand Gerrard Creative Director of the Kings Theatre said "We are excited about the endless possibilities this relationship can bring to both parties."

Alan Knight, club ambassador and a former player who made 801 appearances for the club and current star Kal Naismith joined the cast of Snow White on stage to seal the link. Kal was also a guest at the theatre for the Wednesday evening performance this week.

Mark Catlin Portsmouth Football Club CEO said: “We are delighted to have this partnership with the Kings Theatre.

“Our two organisations have iconic entertainment venues in the city and I am confident our relationship will be beneficial for both parties. I hope it will become an enduring feature which works well for both of us going forward.”

For over a century the Kings Theatre and Portsmouth FC have been entertaining the people of Portsmouth, so it makes perfect sense for them to come together and work on a variety of projects for 2018.
