Remembering Derrick Graham

Long-serving BODS member and former President Derrick Graham has sadly passed away, at the age of 93. Seen here at a celebration of his 90th birthday, Derrick was involved both backstage and as a performer in many productions from the 1970s onwards In addition to his career in architecture, Derrick was also well known as a theatre reviewer for the Surrey Mirror, for his interest in vintage cars (he was President of the Trojan Owners Club) and his inexhaustible store of theatrical props - many of which he himself had made. He lost his wife Diane, who had also been an active BODS member, in 2014 (pictured here together)
