Overview

2003-01-01 Meltham G & S photos (Richard) 434History

We were formed back in 1963 with our first production of HMS Pinafore performed in 1964 and have continued to give a fully staged performance of a G&S opera every November since then.  In addition, a wide range of ‘spring shows’ including music from many different composers has been produced usually in late April.

Initially the group was based on members of Meltham Parish Church choir, but, as they have retired over the years, many new members from outside Meltham have joined to help take the society forward.

Activities

Rehearsals and productions take place in Meltham Church Hall, Greensend Road, Meltham, HD9 5NW.

Rehearsals are on Friday evenings starting at 7.30pm.  (January – April for the spring show;  June to August for G&S production, with floor rehearsals also starting at 7.30pm from September to November).  Prospective new members are very welcome to visit us on a rehearsal night.

An after show lunch is usually held on the Sunday following the last day of our main show each year and everyone is invited.

Coffee Mornings, Quiz Nights etc are held during the year to raise funds towards our main G&S production.
