We are thrilled with the amazing audience who came to see our Winter Concert at Guy’s Chapel on 18th November. It was so lovely to see so many friendly faces and so many new additions as well.

We also raised an astonishing £280 for the music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins, thanks to your incredible donations in the charity auction and donation bucket.

Thank you!

About the Society

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the society, we are back, bigger and better than ever and we would love for you to be a part of the incredible year that we have planned! We are the only student-based G&S society in London and we are dedicated to presenting the best that WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan have to offer!

Our 2017-18 season will include a fully-staged version of Iolanthe at the end of February in the Greenwood Theatre – KCL’s very own Off-West-End theatre venue, as well as a concert in Term 1 to give everyone the chance to perform! We will then be putting on another production in Term 3 before taking a show to Yorkshire in August to participate in the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival 2018!
Although we hold auditions for lead roles, there is an open chorus as we believe that our shows are so much fun that everyone should have the opportunity to take part, even if you’ve never set foot on a stage before – this is your chance! If you are not interested in performing, but would still like to be involved, we also need an orchestra and stage crew, so please get in touch, we would love to have you!
KCL Gilbert and Sullivan Society is one of the best societies to be involved in. At the same time as working hard to produce a fantastic show, we also have an awesome time outside of rehearsals. We have regular socials including a weekend away, Christmas dinner, Summer ball, outings to shows and, of course, the weekly pub trip after every rehearsal!
We are already excited to see what we can achieve in the coming year, and we hope that you will join us and be a part of this incredible society! If you want to perform, or just want to make some new friends, then this is the society for you!

The International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival 2017!

We had a phenomenal time up in Harrogate at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival and our production of The Sorcerer charmed its way into winning 3 awards and receiving 3 more nominations!

The award for Best Female Voice went to Christina Krawec for her fabulous performance as Constance, Dave Anstice-Pim won Best Character Actor for his incredible Alexis and Laura Jamie Anstice-Pim won the Adjudicator’s Special Award for her highly original directorial choices!

Thank you so much to everyone involved in making both the production and the festival such a huge success!!
