It is with great pleasue, I am pleased to announce that Sylvia was awarded the Laurence Roberts Trophy at the annual GMDF awards.
This was the Board's award for Outstanding Contribution to Drama by an individual and so richly deserved. Sylvia has played for the society for 59 years both as the rehearsal accompanist and with the orchestra in our shows and concerts.
Congratulations Sylvia, you deserve it.
Two of our members have been nominated for GMDF awards. Debbie Thew and Martin Bradbury have been nominated for best actress and best actor in last autumn's production 'Jekyll & Hyde - The Musical'.
Congratulations to both of them.
