These two trophies were presented in 1964 to The St.Alban's Junior Drama Group (North Harrow) - later to become The Young Theatre at Harrow - by IAN R.WALLACE, in memory of CARYS TYER who was killed in a car accident in December 1963, aged 16, and who had worked closely with Ian in planning the setting up of the Drama Group.

It is believed that neither Cup was awarded between 1979 & 1982.
When the group disbanded in 1982, it was discovered that, regrettably, the Junior Cup had been lost; but the Senior Cup was recovered and subsequently transferred to The Young Theatre at Beaconsfield where, in 1987, it became the Carys Tyer Memorial Cup for Members aged 14 or under.
KAY KORÉ ROSEBOWL
Awarded to the Member contributing most to the technical activities side of The Young Theatre productions during the season.
This trophy was presented by KAY KORé in 1970 to The Young Theatre (at Harrow) to recognise the technical contributions made to The Young Theatre productions.
It is believed that this Trophy was not awarded between 1978 & 1982.
When The Young Theatre (Harrow) closed in 1982, the trophy was handed back to Kay, who subsequently agreed that it should be transferred to Beaconsfield and used as the Senior Cup. It was first presented in September 1988 for the 1987/88 Season.
