Our Story

Witham Amateur Operatic Society (WAOS) are preparing for their Spring production in April  -  "Calendar Girls the Musical" by taking on the challenge of raising as much money as possible for Farleigh Hospice.

The original and true story tells of a group of extraordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women's Institute, prompted to create this alternative calendar following the death of a much loved husband and friend, to raise fund for Charity.

In the spirit of the original calendar, some of the ladies and gents of WAOS have disrobed and posed to create our own version of their calendar to sell and raise funds for our cancer charities. The calendars are now available to buy for a minimum donation of £8 each.

We will be selling the calendars:

  • Alongside our Spring 2024 Show "Calendar Girls - The Musical" both with our ticket sales and during the production week,

  • As well as many other places between now and the show.

Could you suggest somewhere else we can sell these also?
