The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Ian Armstrong

Ian participated in 2 productions at the Barn.

We sadly record the recent death of Ian Armstrong. Only rarely on our stage he was, nonetheless, a keen supporter of the Club and attended many of our productions.

He came into our orbit via the Welwyn Drama Festival and his award-winning performances with the drama group Flat Four. In the mid 90s he played at the Barn in Death and the Maiden and directed Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me, two powerful dramas with topical political themes. He and Jenny had moved to Witney in Oxfordshire which made them less available, though Jenny was, for a while, the Secretary of the Welwyn Drama Festival.

Ian had three careers: long service with the RAF followed by a period in the City and then as a professional actor, getting roles in provincial productions and understudying in the West End. Always friendly and interested in what other members were achieving, he was good company.

We send our condolences to Jenny and Alison, and his family and friends.
