Sad News: Death of Honorary Life Member Betty Hutt at the age of 99

10th November

We are saddened to hear of the death of Betty Hutt on 7th November 2017 aged 99. Betty had been a loyal supporter of the Criterion for several decades, often helping out on Front of House and was also a generous benefactor of the theatre. In 2008, on the occasion of her 90th birthday, she was created an honorary life member in recognition of her many years of loyal support to the company.  One of her two sons, Stephen, was a key member of our Lighting Department until his early death in the 1970s. Our deepest sympathy goes to her surviving son Andrew, other members of her family, and friends. The funeral will take place at Canley Crematorium on Thursday 16th November at 3.15p.m.. Family flowers only. Donations if desired to the Marie Curie Hospice, Solihull.
