“We are extremely proud of the wealth of talent within our society.

We have a thriving younger membership which provides the foundation to take the society forward over the coming years. As we celebrate our 55 years we feel the time is right to update our image to represent our contemporary ethos.

We are very excited to announce that with effect from June 1st 2014 our new society name will become BOS Musical Theatre Company”.
