Letchworth Arcadians are jumping for joy at the return of live performances.

And that’s not all they are celebrating. At the Arcadians' recent annual general meeting it was agreed to change the name of the society.

The society, which has been a part of the Letchworth musical landscape for over 60 years, decided to change its name from Letchworth Arcadians Amateur Operatic Society to Letchworth Arcadians Musical Society as it reflected what they are all about.

The society's website states: "Following a testing 18 months and an unfortunate postponement of live theatre as we knew it, the committee spent many months working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the society running.

"One thing that has changed is our name and logo. What better way to restart live theatre productions."

The renamed Letchworth Arcadians Musical Society (LAMS) returned to rehearsals at the end of July, and members are now preparing for their first performances back on stage following lockdown.

They will be presenting The Sound of Movies 3 at The Icknield Centre in Letchworth from Thursday, November 11 to Saturday, November 13, 2021.
