The Heritage of Gilbert and Sullivan

Presented by

Bernard Lockett

Bernard is the author of two books about the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, and in this, the second of his highly entertaining and informative talks, he assesses the value of G & S’s works and their influence both on today’s musical theatre and theatrical social culture generally. He will also consider the worldwide popularity of the shows in the 21st century and modern production values.

Coming Shortly – Photos and reports on our recent successful  Looking for William day held on Saturday 15 June. Congratulations, to Louise, Nigel, Wendy, Vanya and of course our entertaining host, Simon Brett for all they accomplished on the day, with three committee members unable to attend for personal reasons. Thanks also to our photographers Kevin Maynard and  Mike Shardlow and our notetakers Fay Shaefer, Gillian Matravers and Richard Wilby.

No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.
Mary Wortley Montague.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.The man who never reads lives only one.
George R.R. Martin
One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.
Carl Sagan
Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.
Jean Rhys
