Jenny Seagrove, Lucy Kenwright and everyone at Bill Kenwright Ltd are devastated to share the sad
news of the loss of a beloved Partner, Father, Grandfather and friend: Bill Kenwright CBE, Theatre Royal Windsor’s Executive Producer.

Following a long battle with illness Bill passed away peacefully last night, surrounded by his family
and loved ones.

Bill was driven by his passions and devoted his life to them; his deep love of theatre, film, music
and his beloved Everton, and the families they created.

He impacted the lives of thousands, whether that be through the launching of careers or his
unending loyalty, generosity and unfaltering friendship and support.

In a multi-award-winning career spanning six decades, Bill produced over 500 West End, Broadway,
UK touring and international theatre productions, films and music albums. His impact on the arts
industry has been profound.

During his time as majority shareholder and Chairman of Everton FC, Bill led the Club through a
period of unprecedented change in English football.

We will remember him with huge love and admiration – the shows will of course go on, as he would
have wished, and his towering legacy will continue.

A celebration of Bill’s life and career will be announced in due course. At this very difficult time we
ask for privacy and respect for Bill’s family and friends.
