It is with sadness that we report the passing of John White in Mid-December. Many of you will have known John at some point over the years either as an actor, director or teacher. He was involved with so many aspects of Festival Drama and latterly with his acclaimed company Bejou Productions that he is almost synonymous with the Festival year producing both full and one act plays.

In later years he battled with poor health but was throughout determined to take part in festivals and life.There are many people, both locally and around the country, who will want to pay their respects to a man who has contributed more than most, to keeping theatre going. In particular, the competitive festival scene may not have thrived as long as it has, without his dedication and contribution to it.

John’s funeral will take place on MONDAY 14TH JANUARY 2019 at 11:20am at

West Chapel Southend Crematorium
285 Sutton Road, Southend On Sea SS2 5PX
