The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Carolyn Annand

Carolyn participated in 32 productions at the Barn.

Carolyn died in October 2023. She was a member of the Welwyn Folk Players in the 1960s and played in Boeing-Boeing, The Italian Straw Hat and The Wayward Way, the latter two productions being the foundation stone of the amalgamation between the Folk Players and the Welwyn Drama Club.

In the newly formed Club’s first season in 1969 she played Childie in The Killing of Sister George and then over the years was involved in over 30 productions for the Barn, spending time equally onstage and backstage. She played major roles in Deathtrap, Pack of Lies and See How They Run. Her last involvement was in 2003 but she was a regular supporter of the Barn since then.

Carolyn joined the Welwyn Garden Youth Drama Festival in the early 1970s as Honorary Secretary and acted as the primary contact for the various competing teams as the Festival Organiser. Along with husband Michael, who was the Festival Treasurer, they served the Festival together for over 20 years.

We send our condolences to Michael, Catherine, Hugh and their families.

A memorial was held for Carolyn on Tuesday 7th November 2023 at St Francis Church, Parkway, Welwyn Garden City.
