A Celebration with Gilbert & Sullivan

"What’s this Grandad, is that you?”

"No, that’s your Great Great Granddad  Frederic. He and Mabel, his wife, founded a Gilbert and Sullivan society just after the first war... "

When Gilbert and Sullivan gets passed down the generations, it keeps the great tradition alive. That's what our society is all about. So we've created an original story which captures the spirit of this - a moving tale of two generations celebrating a shared passion.


Join us at the beautiful Eastbourne Bandstand for an uplifting outdoor production, celebrating our return to live theatre. To include a preview of our November production, The Pirates of Penzance.

The Company

Peter Tucknott, Brenda Gower and Lester Seale as 'the family'. With a guest appearance from
