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.
From September through July we rehearse on a Wednesday evening 6pm - 7:30pm in the Marven Centre excluding school holidays. We also have 3 Saturday workshops that run 10am - 4pm on 29th February, 23rd May and the 20th June.
Membership of SYD 7s costs £100 per year, payable in two installments. We ask for £35 in the Autumn term, and £65 in Jnanuary. This covers the cost of rehearsals, insurance, licencing, costumes and scenery. SYD 7s also perform in the Shelford Feast the week after their main production, the cost of which is included in the annual subs.
