The Easter eggs are sweet memories – but for those interested in developing their skills in drama, new memories are on the horizon.
The Ian Wardlaw Drama Trust has just opened applications for funds toward training courses to develop skills in all aspects of drama – acting, production, technical, design, sound and lighting.

Each year, the Trust invites applications from students at school or college, from members of drama clubs across the region, or from those in full-time training for a career in the performing arts. The application deadline is 1 June.
The Trust, in its 21st Anniversary year, is keen to ensure that there’s a wide spread in age and interests, and that the modest funds it awards should really make a difference to those who receive them. It seeks applicants of all ages, from all parts of the region, and with the growth in participation in the performing arts, feels confident of an interesting and varied portfolio of applicants.
Past grant recipients have been active recently in helping to raise further funds for the Trust, to secure the regular annual grants. Past recipients have attended summer schools, weekend courses, day workshops, as well as full-time drama, technical and musical theatre courses. The grants really can help to start a lifetime interest, or a career in performing arts.
Do spread the word to interested individuals and groups.
Application forms are on the Trust’s website www.wardlawdramatrust.org These can be downloaded, completed and sent to Linda Wardlaw, Secretary, c/o Primrose and Gordon, 1 Newall Terrace, Dumfries DG11LN
