Stephen Fry is set to take over the reigns of chairman of a charity trust to protect an historic West End theatre in London.

The British star will take over the role from Richard Attenborough, who is stepping down from the position.

The Criterion Theatre Trust was established in 1992 to oversee the refurbishment of the venue.

“I couldn’t be more proud and pleased to take over the chair vacated by the inimitable Lord Attenborough,” said Fry. “Between them, he and [chief executive] Sally Greene have ensured that one of the absolute jewels of the West End is in a marvellous position to grow and flourish into the 21st century. I am insanely excited and honoured to take up this new position.”
