2022 AGM Award Winners

At our AGM on Tuesday 6th September 2022 we presented our annual awards:

- The Vanessa Cowell Memorial Shield for Outstanding Contribution to Saffron Players, presented by Jon ‘Petal’ Nicol, was awarded to Simon Bates for being a great sound and lighting engineer and training young members of our crew.

- The Young Performer Trophies, presented by Helen Howett, were awarded to Leila Daw for her outstanding performance as principal boy Quinn and Nyah Bunting for being a great leader in our dance troupe.

- The Comedy Spoon Trophies, presented by Jessica Dickinson, were awarded to Hugh Moss for opening a backdrop mid-scene to reveal stage crew setting up Rapunzel’s tower and Brett Morrissey for keeping all cast and crew, on and off the stage, in high spirits with his great energy, sense of humour and a love of big pants (don’t ask)!


Well done to all our award winners!
