About Us

We have recently re-launched as Bournemouth GaSP having formerly been  known as Bournemouth Gilbert & Sullivan Operatic Society.   As our name suggests we are based in Bournemouth, Dorset and perform at major venues across Dorset, including Lighthouse in Poole , the Regent Centre in Christchurch and the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown.  There is something going on year round and we have regular social events too!

Award winners

We have won best in category Accolade of Excellence awards from National Operatic & Dramatic Association (NODA) as well as winning several awards at The International Gilbert & Sullivan Festivals.

Charity donations

We are a charitable organisation and we support our community by giving generous donations to local charities which have included: Macmillan Caring Locally, The Dorset ME Support Group, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and New Forest and District Sailability.  

Join us

Performing membership is open to anyone who passes an audition but we also welcome non-acting members to help behind the scenes with props, scenery construction and general administration.  If you would like to be part of the fun, as a performer or helper then please click here to contact us.
