Exeter University Gilbert and Sullivan Society

August 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

Not only are we Exeter’s oldest amateur G&S society, but we are also one of the longest running student societies on campus, (the society started in 1968). Our aim is to produce every year a light operetta by W.S. Gilbert & Sir Arthur Sullivan. Membership is open to students at Exeter University by audition. If singing and dancing aren’t your thing but you’d still like to be involved, you can also join the backstage crew.
