Welcome to our new website!

When the boat came in!
Her Majesty’s Ship Pinafore duly set sail on Friday 22 June at St Margaret’s RC Memorial Church, East Port, Dunfermline, with our maestro Willie Campbell leading and accompanist Janet Barbour working harder than anyone to make the evening a musical success. Little Buttercup was there to welcome aboard both the crew and all Sir Joseph’s female relatives, and the church was pleasantly full of both singing and non-singing members of the audience. Grateful thanks to all those who contributed to the evening’s fun.
At the end of the evening, Joy Campbell presented a scrapbook of photographic memories to Mike Pendlowski to mark his retirement as our long-serving Production Manager, after 45 years of involvement with the Society.
If you took any photographs of the evening, or you would like to report on the sing-along from an audience perspective, do please email your webmaster
Book a place on the boat!
HMS Pinafore is sailing soon, to be precise at 7.30pm on Friday 22 June, when we invite you to come to St Margaret’s RC Memorial Church, East Port, Dunfermline. All you have to do is navigate to KY12 7JB, part with £10, and enjoy an evening of G&S. It’s your choice whether to sing along with the choruses – bring a score, or we’ll provide one – or just sit back and enjoy the results of the efforts of others!
If you prefer to buy a ticket in advance, talk to any member of the Society, or contact our ticket hot-line by phone (07703 483083) or email ku.gro.ssagdnull@selastekcit. Most importantly, turn up on the night – you can pay at the door.
Our Society isn’t yet quite 50 (though we’re starting to plan to celebrate that), but today (25 May) it’s 140 years since the first performance of HMS Pinafore. This show opened at the Opera Comique in London on 25 May 1878 and ran for 571 performances, the second-longest run of any musical theatre piece up to that time.
Why not wish Pinafore a Happy Birthday by coming along to our Singalong on 22 June? A £10 ticket buys you an evening of fun, either to sing – bring your own score, or we’ll lend you a copy – or just to listen to. Tickets from members, or contact our ticket hot-line by phone (07703 483083) or email ku.gro.ssagdnull@selastekcit. You too will then be able to “whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense, Pinafore”, which you’ll remember as one of Major-General Stanley’s qualifications for his exalted rank!
