Our mission statement

The Society aims to present a varied programme of events such as concerts and presentations from leading artists and specialists, visits to relevant to the world of theatre and performing arts also attending performances in theatres and similar venues.

The collaborations between Richard D’Oyly Carte, W S Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan which led to the 14 famous operettas are what might be called our roots. The continued active management of the D’Oyly Carte Company by Richard’s descendants similarly are our roots. D’Oyly Carte other business interests, W S Gilbert’s other writings and interests, also Sullivan’s extensive other musical works form a lush foliage. The careers and repertoires of the multitude of artists, many extremely famous, engaged to perform the works over the past 140 years are the lush cover of multi-coloured blooms not forgetting contemporaries of G&S. Thus, we have the expansive tree from which our wide-ranging programme can be produced.
