We are a 32-year old operatic society which performs a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta each year in the Spring at Hornby Institute, Hornby, Lancaster, where we also meet and rehearse. We rehearse on Friday nights from mid-September and Saturday mornings nearer to the show dates. We welcome energetic new members who are interested in singing, acting, set building, prompting, props and front of house. Find out more about membership. Our 2014 production "HMS Pinafore and Trial By Jury " was awarded the winner of the Best G&S Production in the Northwest. More recently our 2015 production of The Mikado played to a full house and recieved superb reviews. We perform with an orchestra which is very popular with our audiences and greatly enhances the sense of occasion and drama. We perform with attractive sets, lighting and fully costumed, to create a rich theatrical effect! Our Producer and MD are experienced with a great deal of technique to share.
According to NODA
Hornby Occasionals are the best G&S Production in the Northwest 2014.
Trial By Jury and HMS Pinafore was a great experience that we were all proud to be a part of.
Well Done Sandra Bamber and Richard Bromley.
A Truly well deserved Award for our Fabulously talented Principles and Chorus.
A Proud moment indeed.
