Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the area’s leading choral societies. Under the acclaimed leadership of our Music Director, Grace Rossiter, assisted by our outstanding accompanist Richard Harvey, FCS performs a large part of the choral repertoire including both great classical works and more modern pieces, some specially commissioned for the choir.”
“The Mill Hill Musical Theatre Company was founded as the Mill Hill Amateur Operatic Society by Richard Graves in 1954. Over the past 60 years we have put on a wide range of theatrical productions – you can see a list here. We have always met and performed in Mill Hill, north-west London, but welcome members and audiences from all over London and the Home Counties.
Each year we perform two shows. Our main autumn show is a fully-staged musical or operetta, held over four nights and open to the public. Our spring ‘Patrons’ Party’ is put on exclusively for the valued patrons of our Company, and is usually a musical or revue.”

Our runners are of all ages, from beginners to national standard atheletes. New members are most welcome and training can be given.

It is not often that a professional can feel as useful a member of the community as I do, helping to bring the joy of music where it is so badly needed”.
