Our Patron and former member of the Western Australian Youth Theatre Company Tim Minchin performed at the Australia Day Foundation 2011 Gala Dinner, at Australia House and found himself presented with an award:

Young Australian Achiever of the Year in the UK

“To have achieved so much in his career at a young age is perhaps not surprising given Tim Minchin’s many talents and his focus. The Foundation awards great talent and in recognition of his extraordinary accomplishments to date the Australia Day Foundation consider Tim Minchin a worthy recipient of the 2011 Young Australian Achiever of the year in the UK award”, said Philip Aiken, Chairman of the Australia Day Foundation.

The Australia Day Foundation, gathers Australians in the UK to celebrate Australia’s national day, which falls on 26 January.  Previous recipients are Harry Kewell, Shane Osborn, Joe Roff, Chloe Chick, Matt Wilkin and Dr Ainsley Newson.

We’d like to congratulate Tim on his award and remarkable achievements in the performing arts. Tim composed the music for our production of ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’ amongst other things. All our members should be inspired by Tim’s talent, dedication to his profession, success and hard work.
