The members will enjoy a relaxing evening, on Friday 23 September, celebrating 70 years of Largs Amateur Operatic Society with former member, patrons and friends. Those attending the event will enjoy a meal at the Brisbane House Hotel and entertainment from 'A Handful of Harmony'. It is an ideal opportunity to reflect on the shows that the society has produced over the years, reminisce about the hard work, fun and laughter at rehearsals and remember the personalities who have brought the society to life for seven decades
