Covid-19 fundraising appeal

On 18th March 2020, the government ordered all theatres to close due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Hereford G & S was forced to cancel its production of “Iolanthe” the day before opening night, having already paid out the majority of production costs.

Our Covid-19 fundraising campaign is ongoing. Please support us to continue with our charitable work, and bring our audiences joy in years to come. You can donate easily, quickly and securely via PayPal Giving. Click here to show your support. Thank you.

Help us preserve a piece of very British heritage and continue to bring Gilbert and Sullivan to the people of Herefordshire and the Marches.

Hereford G&S’ mission is to bring the music and wit of Britain’s finest musical partnership to the people of Herefordshire and the Marches and to encourage participation in the performing arts either on stage or backstage and in doing so to contribute to the culture of our community. In pursuit of these we perform on big and small stages and take our work into schools to introduce younger members of society to live performance, many of whom will have never experienced it before.

As a non-profit making Charitable organisation, Hereford Gilbert and Sullivan Society is always looking for sponsors to help us with the costs of putting on a show which are detailed below.
