We are terribly sad to announce that Ginny Graham has passed away.
Ginny set up Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre in 1983 and was not only the founder but also the creative and administrative director until she passed the mantle on to me in 2010. All who passed through her hands as students, and all those who worked with her and knew her, will agree that she was a creative tour de force who had a massive impact on the lives of those around her. I could not have asked for a more supportive mentor and I and all the trustees who now run the organisation are determined to uphold the standards and ethos of the Youth Theatre as instigated by Ginny all those years ago.
Ginny’s funeral will be held at Green Lane Burial Field, Upper Bryntach, Abermule, SY21 6LA on Monday 9th November at 1.30pm. All are welcome to attend, but the family request that there are NO FLOWERS. The wake will be held from 2.30pm at Bistro 7 in Welshpool and the family ask that there is no formal dress code – Ginny wished for this to be a joyful occasion.
Donations are to be divided between Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre and Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and can be pledged via the following link:
