LTYG wins big at the East Sussex Youth Awards

Conversations soon turned to excited chatter as desert was finished and Caroline Ansell MP’s began her speech with a poignant message about the importance of youths establishing themselves as individuals and to gain confidence in their own abilities for a prosperous career and successful future.

The awards' presenters, Heart FM’s Lynsey Bartlett and Dan Gasser of Brighton’s Juice 107.2FM, then took to the stage to welcome the East Sussex Youth Awards’ headline sponsor representative – Mike Hopkins, principal and chief executive of Sussex Downs College, who finished the welcoming speeches with a heartfelt message about the significance of the awards and their meaning to the young achievers throughout Sussex.

After just a few of the awards were presented, the Arts and Media Awards’ highly commended winners and overall category winners were announced, along with the Drama category for which we waited in great anticipation. As the last highly commended winner was congratulated and it came to the overall category winner, we all held our breaths for what seemed like hours until finally, “Lewes Theatre Youth Group” was announced the winner. With whoops of joy we went up onto the stage and proudly collected the Drama Award from the jubilant category sponsor Mike Hopkins of Sussex Downs College.

We are absolutely ecstatic to have won this highly prized award! Thank you to the judges, Faiza, the sponsors, organisers and wonderful audience for their support and for helping to make this night one for LTYG to remember forever.

Thank you to everyone for making the awards ceremony such a wonderful event, and congratulations to all winners and the fantastically entertaining performances from Sussex Dance Studio, Daymond Dance Academy and the Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors.
