The  winner of this year's Sir Alec Guinness award, sponsored by the Catholic Association of Performing Arts,  is Beth Cunninghame Graham, a final year drama student at Arts Educational.

The award was presented to Beth by actress Dame Eileen Atkins, at the Drama Centre in Covent Garden on 29 February.
