W S Gilbert wrote the words, Arthur Sullivan the music. While their popularity waxes and wanes with each new generation, their lyrics still ring true: after all, social and political satire were their bread and butter! In the 25 years of working together, they created 14 very successful operettas, although their own relationship was often less harmonious than their musical output.

The presenter is Bernard Lockett, an acclaimed author and broadcaster on all things G&S and also a trustee of the international G&S Festival in Harrogate. His talk considers the social and political comments within the works of Gilbert & Sullivan and their relevance in the 21st century. Please note that guests are very welcome but will be asked to pay a £3 entrance fee so why not try our mini-membership offer? Visit our website for further details.
