2017 Show Announcement & SFYS recap

Sing For Your Supper 2017

Thank you to everyone who came and made our annual charity concert such a great evening. We are pleased to announce that we raised £1,172.62 for Alzheimer Scotland.
Thanks again to all the local performance groups and audience members for taking part in this event.


2017 Main Show Announcement

As you may have already seen on our facebook or in the local press, our autumn show this year will be Sister Act. This great hit modern show will run from the 1st to the 4th of November 2017 in the Victoria Halls, Helensburgh.
Auditions will be held in June with details to be announced in the local press and on facebook nearer the time.


Costume Store Drama

Some of you may know that we have, for the past couple years, had access to a room in an unused council property for our costume and props storage. Due to a change in personnel at A&B, we only discovered last week that the building was about to go on the market and we had 1 week to vacate! After much brain wracking among the committee and an appeal to club members for options, Minuteman Press on John Street in Helensburgh agreed to step in in the short term and give us some of their upstairs space. A huge thanks to Richard and Jane for saving us from the big hassle of, worst-case-scenario, having to divy the costumes up among committee members houses!
In the meantime we are still searching for a more suitable permanent home (ideally rent free!) so any ideas, do please get in touch.

Upcoming Events

Spring Concert – 19th & 20th May, in the URC Hall in Helensburgh. Tickets available from the start of May.
