Thornbury

Opera Study Group

Why not come to an evening performance at the Opera Study Group. We use high quality DVDs and a large screen with subtitles in English with a synopsis of the plot given by one of the group. We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 6.45pm (doors open from 6.30) in the Thornbury Methodist Church Hall (downstairs) and your group membership/fee (£7 annual or £2/visit) includes free tea/coffee and biscuits.

In addition, we also show a longer opera on the 5th Tuesday of any month. Arrangements for this are slightly different. We begin at 4.30pm and watch part 1 then partake of a delicious buffet meal or bring your own food, then watch part 2 after which we have pudding, coffee/tea then proceed to the final part, the whole evening finishing generally at ~ 9.45-10pm. The cost is £3 for the opera and £4 for the buffet which must be booked in advance either a week earlier at the normal monthly meeting or by telephoning Helen Giles (411571) .
