BLODS History

Bexhill Light Operatic and Dramatic Society (BLODS) was originally known as Bexhill Amateur Operatic Society. Our very first production was The Mikado in 1933.

The first performance at the new De La Warr Pavilion was ‘Princess Ida’ in 1936 and productions continued there until the Second World War brought shows to a halt. The BLODS re-appeared at the Pavilion in 1946 with ‘Iolanthe’ and continued with one show per year until 1970 when two shows became the norm.

You can find out more about our past productions here.

The BLODS have always endeavoured to present a high standard of musical never shirking the challenge of new shows such as the Noda Award-winning ‘Jekyll and Hyde’.
