It is with deep sadness to inform all Hull Savoyard supporters that  the Society’s  President and Honorary Life Member Jean Ward-Skerrow passed away on Tuesday afternoon following a short illness.

Jean sang with many of the great singers and orchestras of the day but her name will truly be remembered with Hull Savoyards where she  sung the majority of the female leads in the G&S repertoire. She had a rich, strong soprano voice which was admired but her off stage personality  will be equally remembered. Jean's dedication to Hull Savoyards has been unsurpassable, she joined the Society in 1957 and has been a member and supporter ever since.

I feel it is unlikely to see anyone again with this loyalty, commitment and dedication to one Society. She has seen the Society go through good and bad times but has never wavered in her support and desire for the Society to be successful. She was a lady generous of spirit and kind as a person who was always prepared to help any member and to carry out any task she was asked to do for the Society.

A time of sadness – Eternal Rest.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Hull Savoyards need to find a replacement for Peep-Bo in their June Production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado.

If you feel this would suit you why not email the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or indeed give us a call on 07799 037124 to arrange an audition.

The Three Little Maids including Peep-Bo from the Hull Savoyards 2006 production

The production will be accompanied by the Kingston Savoy Orchestra; it is a masterpiece of whimsy, satire, silliness and jollity. If you wanted a definition of Englishness in all its surreal glory then The Mikado is it. Part farce, part romantic comedy it is totally captivating. It takes you out of yourself and transports you to a world of fantasy and comic joy with colourful costumes and wonderful music. There will be four performance of The Mikado in June 2020 with two of these being at The Middleton Hall.

For anyone who would like to participate in the chorus as gentlemen of Japan, townsfolk or school girls why not take this opportunity and give a call as above.
