Members of Quarry Bank Operatic Society were at the Black Country Boating Festival at Bumble Hole Nature Reserve at Netherton on Saturday (September 15) to promote their up coming production of the Pirates of Penzance.
The show, one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic operettas, will run at Netherton Arts Centre, Northfield Road, Netherton, from Tuesday September 25 to Saturday September 29.
