London's leading Gilbert and Sullivan company




Welcome to the Grosvenor Light Opera Company! We are an amateur operatic society  based in central London, focusing on the works of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan and complementing this with other material. GLOC has a long history - with over 70 performances of G&S since its debut in 1949!

We most recently performed Princess Ida at the Bridewell Theatre, to great reviews and a fabulous audience! We'll be putting photos

of the show on our Facebook page very soon -

In August, we'll be taking the show to the

International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in

Harrogate - see here for more information and to

get tickets - one performance only, don't miss



Come and Sing - Carousel!

Join us as we explore this iconic work in a day-

long workshop. Featuring such classics as “If I

loved you” and “You’ll never walk alone”, Oscar

Hammerstein’s challenging narrative scales the

heights and plumbs the depths of human

existence, all woven together by Richard Roger’s

luscious score.


Led by our MD Christopher Jacklin and

professional singers Lucy Hall and Samuel Oram,

and accompanied by pianist Nick Pope, we will explore the music and drama of the piece and learn about vocal technique and stagecraft, culminating in an informal performance. No prior experience is necessary and all music will be provided. Visit here for tickets.
















We are always delighted to hear from any potential new members of the society, and have vacancies for all voice parts. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6.45pm to 9.45pm at St Gabriel's Hall in Pimlico.
