Eighth Annual Lunch.


When Special Guest Speaker was be

Simon Butteriss


Our Celebrity Guest at this year's Luncheon was one of our Vice President Simon Butteriss, a Former principal with the New D`Oyly Carte Opera Company and for many years Star of the Buxton Gilbert and Sullivan Festival Opera.

His name will be familiar to many of you through his work as a G & S patter man, but he is so much more than that.

A fine baritone opera singer, actor and director, he has done an incredible amount of clever and varied work.   He was a chorister at Westminster Abbey, read English at Cambridge, has written and translated for stage, screen and opera house, and has sung in opera houses all over the world.

This immensely gifted man can do just about anything, and do it superbly well.

There is an enormous amount of information about him on Google - do have a look.', Here is a good starting point  http://www.simonbutteriss.com/Biography.html
