About Us: 

Since 1969 the Swindon Gilbert and Sullivan Society have been performing their works to audiences in and around Swindon and beyond. The society consists of an enthusiastic and talented pool of people of all ages who pride themselves on bringing these works to life for modern audiences. We meet at the Wroughton Workingmen's Club Devizes Road, Wroughton, Swindon, Wiltshire SN4 0SA every Tuesday at 7.30pm between September and June. In addition to performing at least one full opera a year we also perform the works of Gilbert and Sullivan at concerts and festivals throughout Wiltshire and the neighbouring counties.

History: 

We were founded in 1969 from a small group who were performing Gilbert and Sullivan at St Josephs School, Swindon and on moving to the Mechanics Institute, renamed ourselves the Swindon Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Since then we have also played in the Wyvern Theatre, the Steam Museum, and have now finally settled in the Arts Centre in Old Town. During that time, we have played nearly all of Gilbert and Sullivan's works. There are always new interpretations of the shows, and the timeless humour and beautiful music keep both our members and our audience fascinated.
