BAOS (Basingstoke Amateur Operatic Society) has been keen to support and use Market Chambers for auditions and Sunday rehearsals. The atmosphere enhances the performance and our rehearsals.
It is a fantastic space for creative workshops and audiences. We enjoy the flexibility of the building and we love seeing artwork displayed.
The concept is brilliant and we have had representatives on the committee since opening the doors to the artistic and musical people of Basingstoke.
Limelight is the youth group of BAOS, and is open to youngsters, between 11-18 years old. We run workshops, perform concerts, put on shows, and welcome members who like to sing, act, dance or work behind the scenes.
BAOS Limelight love using MCPT because of the space and light in the building. The youngsters have a green room where they can chillout during breaks in the rehearsal schedules; they are often filling the other nooks and crannies, learning lines, practising songs or dance routines.
We are always happy to welcome new members, please contact us email:
