Tenor Nicky Spence is one of two patrons of the An Tobar and Mull Theatre.
Per an official press statement, “The An Tobar and Mull Theatre is a multi-artform creative hub on the Hebridean island of Mull. It is a place for joining in, with a welcoming and joyous heart. It tells stories that matter and it aspires to be an island voice on a national stage in an international conversation. It supports art of all kinds for people of all kinds. Its aim is for its audiences to leave feeling nourished, connected, and understood. It values fun, openness, bravery, and generosity and aims for innovation in a sustainable way. The art it makes is a beacon; a shining light guiding the way back to Mull.”
Spence joins actress Golda Rosheuvel, well-known for her appearances as Queen Charlotte in the Netflix series “Bridgerton,” as the first-ever patrons of the Isle of Mull-based venues.
“Being from rural Scotland myself, being part of the magic at An Tobar and Mull Theatre is a real privilege,” Spence said in the official press statement. “The work they do in complementing the idyllic surroundings with homegrown, provocative and thoughtful offerings is astounding.”
