Proceeds from the youth theatre’s Henlow Variety Performance were donated to the hospice which cared for former youth theatre co-ordinator Geoff, who sadly died last year.

Keith Lander from HATS said: “Geoff was a stalwart of HATS from when he joined in 2008 until his untimely death in 2017.

“He played many parts, from Abanazer in Aladdin to General Von Smelling in Allo, Allo!

“Geoff also directed several successful plays and pantomimes including No Sex Please, We Are British and Babes in the Wood. His most recent production, Beauty and the Beast was in February 2017. He was very well-liked and a popular co-ordinator of the youth theatre from 2012 to 2014.”
