Tim Hill through the ages
Tim Hill says: As the year draws towards its inevitable conclusion, I realise I have forgotten to buy a 2014 calendar but I know something important is coming soon  •  I had already eaten too much on four occasions this December but who could resist the grub and the company when a load of us XYTites got together at Macken's Squirrel yesterday? Jonathan took some photos which he posted to facebook. I'm sorry on two counts: sorry that I had to dash and didn't get to talk to everyone and sorry that I never mentioned the lunch in xYT News: someone is bound to have missed out but it was fully booked before I had a chance to mention it. Well done Jon for sorting it all out  •   A belated happy 50th anniversary to the National Theatre, Doctor Who, JFK's assassination, Porche, and the March on Washington; all of which happened before 12th January 1964, the first meeting of a drama group which was to become The Young Theatre in Harrow  •   As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations, we are putting together a commemorative page or two. It would be great to include your memories. In a nutshell, we would like to know “What did YT ever do for you?” Please let us know.

Did you know..?

New in the Archive since the last Archiver…

Jack And The Beanstalk

IRW has been busy trying to contact as many ex-members of YT Harrow in the build-up to the 50th Anniversary of the first meeting of the group in January 2014. So far he has heard from quite a number of ex-members including: Tricia Wardle (née Maskell) and of course IRW's own brother Martin , both of whom were there at that first meeting; Andrew Kitchen; Kay Koré; Jacquie Russell; Paul Moran and Mike (Midge) Williams both of whom were Group Directors at Harrow. Louise Gill (née Brooks) - who's now living in California - put IRW in touch with a number of other XYT-ites from Harrow including Claire Toeman. Clare's daughter Holly Gibbs is also an actress. After a successful acting career, Clare set up and runs Crocodile Casting. Ian has also heard from John Grantham (aka John Graham) who also followed a successful acting career by setting up a successful agency - Grantham Hazeldine. Ian is still tracking people down, but is already collecting some very interesting stories which we hope to collate into a special page, with their personal memories of YT, to mark the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the YT in January next year.
