A Saffron Walden businesswoman has won an award for her "inspirational" theatre projects.

Sarah Ellis, of HyperFusion Theatre Company, collected a silver prize in the Most Inspiring category at the Best Business Women Awards gala last month.

Sarah won the award in 2020, but the ceremony was delayed following Covid-19 concerns.

Sarah said: "Things are so hard at the moment.

"This honour gives me hope and determination to get back and do what we do best – make great theatre and change the world."

Sarah has run HyperFusion for more than 15 years and has since founded two projects - TIC Box and The Shhh Experience which specialises in non-theatre performances.

TIC Box specialises in "conversation starters", exploring LGBTQ+ and domestic abuse themes, among others.
