Havant Light Opera


Havant Light Opera was founded in 1978 by a team of Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiasts and continues to flourish, specialising in the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Membership is around 35.

The society performs two stage productions a year at The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in Havant. The summer production in June or July is usually a Gilbert & Sullivan opera, and the December production is a concert or show with a seasonal flavour.

HLO also sing a wide variety of choral music for charity concerts in churches, halls, residential homes and similar venues throughout the year.
