Huddersfield and District Amateur Light Opera Society

The society, now known as the Huddersfield Light Opera Company, was formed in 1912.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post (06/Jan/1912), it was founded "with the object of producing original works wherever possible and of encouraging the original work of British composers".

It is believed that all the productions were performed at the Theatre Royal on Ramsden Street until its closure in 1960.
