In 2008 a group of former SYD members went into primary schools to provide performing arts for year 6 students. The following year SYD 7s was launched and put on their first production of 'Ocean World'.
SYD 7s is open to those in school year 7. Most of our members attend Sawston Village College but this is not a requirement, nor is being resident in the surrounding villages.
Historically we would launch in September and spend time working on theatre and performance skills before launching into a major production. This year we are launching in January and the long term plans are as yet to be decided.
Membership of SYD 7s costs £65 this year. This covers the cost of rehearsals, insurance, licencing, costumes and scenery. We hope to also feature in the Shelford Feast as a further performance opportunity, which will take place in July.
