Little has been publicly known about the structure and growth plan of the new player until now but the company is officially launching today after theatre impresarios Sir Howard Panter and Rosemary Squire OBE acquired Lyn Goleby’s Picturehouse distribution assets in a multi-million-pound deal earlier this year.

Trafalgar Entertainment board members alongside Panter and Squire include chairman Greg Dyke, Richard Lenane, Clive Hollick, Jim Tanner, Bob Bartner, Laurence Isaacson, Peter Norris, Richard Steeves, and Goleby.
