Following on from the Bolsover Drama Group 30th Anniversary showcase evening in June the Youth Section hosted their own showcase evening, entitled ‘A Trip Down Memory Lane’, on Saturday 12th November 2011.  The evening saw members of the youth section performed songs from past Youth Section productions, including ‘Oliver’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘High School Musical’, as well as songs from musicals which the Youth Section have yet to perform and the forthcoming production of ‘Summer Holiday’.

The evening also saw the presentation of long service awards to Youth Section members and the announcement of this years winner of the Jack Elliott Trophy.

The Jack Elliott Trophy recognises a youth member or youth members who have over a number of years continually demonstrated commitment to the group, an Excellent attendance record,  excellent attitude and excellent behaviour.

The 2011 award, chosen by members of the group who work with the Youth Section, was presented to Laura Hulett by chairman Mick Whitehouse and previous winners of the award.
