Great Witley Operatic Society

The origins of the Society are slightly obscure, but it is believed that 1952 is the crucial date, since it was in that year that the ladies of the Women’s Institute, Great Witley Branch, resolved to form a Choir. It was not long before the members of the Choir realised that the range and scope of the music they could perform would be greatly enhanced by the admission of some gentlemen to their ranks. At about the same time, the link with the Women’s Institute was severed and the Great Witley Choir became an independent body.

The Society are no longer based in Great Witley, but you can find out more about them on their website.
