Launched in 2004 by former members to help support an overflow of young people, SYD Juniors put on their first production of 'The Young Ones' in 2005.
SYD Juniors is open to those in school years 8 and 9. Most of our members have previously been in SYD 7s though this is not a requirement, nor is being resident in Sawston or attending Sawston Village College.
From September to December we rehearse on a Wednesday evening 7:30pm - 9:45pm in the Marven Centre. In the new year we move our Wednesday rehearsals over to the music block at Sawston Village College 7:15pm - 9:30pm. After the February half-term we return to the Marven Centre as before but also add Sunday afternoon rehearsals 2:15pm - 4:45pm, also in the Marven Centre. Rehearsals run every week from the 25th September through to the show in May, excluding school holidays.
Membership of SYD Juniors costs £140 per year. This covers the cost of rehearsals, insurance, licencing, costumes and scenery as well as our residential weekend at Burwell House in April. SYD Juniors also perform in the Shelford Feast in July each year, the cost of which is included in the annual subs.
