In 2025 we will be performing "HMS Pinafore" (or The Lass That Loved a Sailor).

"HMS Pinafore" is a hilarious tale of love, honour and duty. The story goes something like this.

Josephine, the daughter of Captain Corcoran, falls for lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw. However, she’s torn between her true love, and her father’s desire for her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty.


We are always looking for new members, so if you fancy exercising the vocal chords and enjoy four-part singing, why not come along to St. Andrew’s Community Hall, Denison Street, Batley WF17 7NU, on Wednesday evenings at 7.30 pm . See the Members Area for more details.

If you don’t want to make a weekly commitment, there are other opportunities to help backstage and front of house around the show time:

  • Set design and construction
  • Scenery painting
  • Collating and organising stage properties
  • Wardrobe and Make-up
  • Front of House – selling programmes, raffle tickets

For further details contact either our President, Stephanie Roe or Secretary, Lyndsey Hall – see Contact Page. You can also catch up with our activities on ourFacebook page.
