Welcome To SADOS

Welcome to the home of the Spalding Amateur Dramatic & Operatic Society


Promoting the performance of live music and drama, especially amongst the young people in South Lincolnshire

Kindly Sponsored By


In 1870, a group of Spalding gentlemen formed an Amateur Society for the performance of plays, some of which were musical plays, featuring an orchestra.


In 1928 an Operatic Society was formed to present musical plays, and the happy union of this Society with the older one created SADOS as it is known today...


In 1969 an urgent need for new scenery flats for the Dramatic Section led to the suggestion of a pantomime performance to raise funds. We are now a Registered Charity and continue to grow.
