Welcome to the web site of Batley Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

We are an enthusiastic group of amateur performers dedicated primarily to performing the works of W.S. Gilbert and A.S. Sullivan.  In 2009 we marked our 60th anniversary, and now look forward to being able to celebrate our 70th anniversary in 2018/19.

Our most recent production was “The Gondoliers” (5th to 8th April, 2017 at Batley Town Hall). Rehearsals for our 2018 production (The Sorcerer) will start in September 2017 - more details to follow.

We are always looking for new members, so if you fancy exercising the vocal chords and enjoy four-part singing, why not come along to St. Andrew’s Community Hall, Denison Street, Batley WF17 7NU on Wednesday evenings at 7.30 p.m. See the Society Zone for more details.

If you don’t want to make a weekly commitment, there are other opportunities to help backstage and front of house around the show time:

  • • Set design and construction
    • Scenery painting
    • Collating and organising stage properties
    • Wardrobe and Make-up
    • Front of House – selling programmes, raffle tickets

For further details contact either our President, Stephanie Roe or Secretary, Lyndsey Hall – see “Contact Page”. You can also catch up with our activities on our Facebook page.
