In 2018, Hebden Bridge Light Opera Society will be celebrating its centenary. This is a very exciting prospect for us! It’s wonderful for us to have such a long history to draw on, even though it’s not always been a smooth ride.

We want to make our story publicly accessible. We have accumulated a lot of archive material about the Society’s history and past events  which we’ll be adding to this site over time.

If you’ve got a good story to tell about the Society, we’d love to hear from you! Perhaps you’ve been a performer, part of the backstage team or have fond memories of a particular show? If you’ve got good quality photos or documents that we might be able to publish on this site, even better. Naturally, we’ll credit all submissions that we use.
