The Christine Begg “Beggsie” Award was devised as a way for the club to show it’s appreciation to people who have made a substantial contribution to the club during the year, no matter their relationship to the club. The Award is voted upon by members of the committee and our main shows production team (Director, MD, Stage Manager). In it’s first year the award was given to it’s namesake as a sign of appreciation for the long number of years Christine Begg has been involved in the club, including multiple stints on the committee.
