Welcome

Welcome to Longwood Amateur Operatic Society’s website.

We have been performing in Huddersfield since 1924.  Our venues have changed over the years – moving with the times – from the Mechanics Hall in Longwood (where we started and hence named our society Longwood AOS) to the former Venn Street Arts Centre, which was pulled down to make way for the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, to the Lawrence Batley Theatre on Queen Street.  We were the first amateur operatic society to stage a show at the LBT, as it has become affectionately known, with our performance of The Pirates of Penzance in 1994.

Sadly, this year we are unable to perform a musical at the LBT due to financial difficulties. However – we are striving to overcome this predicament by actively fund raising to try to get us back performing our wonderful musicals for the audiences of Huddersfield and surrounding areas.

We are therefore pleased  to announce that we will be performing a MUSCIAL SHOWCASE back at the Longwood Mechanics Hall in Longwood, Huddersfield.   The show will open on Wednesday 4th October and will run until Saturday 7th October. We will be performing a matinee on the 7th. All evening performances will commence at 7.15pm and the matinee at 2.15pm.  (times to be confirmed later).  Please do come along and support us.
