Gilbert and Sullivan Society
- G&S

The Gilbert and Sullivan society typically put on three or four shows a year, including a freshers' show open to all in Michaelmas, a large scale show in Lent (at West Road Concert Hall for the foreseeable future), and a show at the 700-seat Minack Theatre on the cliffs of Cornwall in September.

Although members are welcome to participate in any single project, the G&S Society is well known for its sociability, and has a strong events calendar in addition to its productions, which provides fabulous opportunities to meet lots of lovely people! To whet your appetite, these include singthroughs of shows (plus free gourmet food and drink!), movie nights, pub crawls and subsidized trips to the theatre for members. A festive Christmas party, glamorous Annual Dinner and gorgeous garden party complete the irresistible parcel!

We have also put on many shows that were not written by Gilbert or Sullivan, and welcome funding applications for other shows that would be of interest to our members.
