BOP Concert Party


A talented group of BOP’s members have formed a Concert Party, with a flexible programme of popular and well-known songs from smash-hit musicals, to perform at events across the Fylde and surrounding areas. Most recently the Concert Party was invited to entertain volunteers and staff at a Volunteers Appreciation Evening at Trinity Hospice in Bispham. Their performance was very well received with a rare standing ovation from the attendees!


Lorraine Oxley, Volunteering & Community Engagement Manager at Trinity Hospice said:

“Trinity was delighted to welcome back Blackpool Operatic Players who provided fantastic entertainment for our wonderful volunteers. A fabulous night thoroughly enjoyed by all. We hope they will return!”


The Concert Party are increasingly in demand and are now building a schedule of performances. If you would like to register interest in booking the group to enhance your event, please click here for further details.
