Bottesford boasted an active and ambitious operatic society during the 1920s and 30s. Photographs show the casts made up of local people enthusiastically mounting productions of Gilbert & Sullivan works well supported by local shops and businesses. These pictures are from productions of The Mikado, Pirates of Penzancew and Trial by Jury. Does anyone have pictures or programmes from other productions that were put on?
Janet Peet (nee Tinkler) has contacted us to tell us about her mother’s part in these performances (see Comments, below.) Can anyone else identify the performers in these splendid productions?
