Welcome to our new website! We’ve been working to redevelop the site, so some things have moved, but you’ll find the static material that used to appear at the bottom of this page has been relocated to the Welcome page.

One day to launch!
Don’t forget that Her Majesty’s Ship Pinafore will be ready to sail tomorrow evening (Friday 22 June) at St Margaret’s RC Memorial Church, East Port, Dunfermline. Our maestro, Willie Campbell, and accompanist, Janet Barbour, will be in position, and Little Buttercup will be there to welcome aboard both the crew and all Sir Joseph’s female relatives.
Whether you want to sing or listen, just bring yourself, your voice (or hands to clap), and £10 to St Margaret’s to enjoy a fun evening!
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!
