Jimmy Chamberlain was the winner of the Rising Star Award 2012 and has been volunteering with the Blue Elephant’s Education Department since he moved to London to start university.

He is only twenty but the commitment he shows to the organisation, and the Young People’s Theatre in particular, is exceptional. He supports various groups for young people participating in our theatre giving encouragement to local young people, who might otherwise be unable to access the arts for social, economic or other reasons.

He also bends over backwards to help out whenever the need arises. This may be doing ‘front of house’ for a school performance at the theatre, rigging lights for a Young People[‘s Theatre performance, being an escort on a trip to the theatre or lending a hand to other education projects when needed.

He is completely devoted to any project he undertakes and a key part of the team at the Blue Elephant.
His award was presented by Cllr Dora Dixon-Fyle, cabinet member for young people and children’s services.
