About the GOs
The GOs started out in 2009 as an over 50's light exercise group made up mainly of theatre volunteers in partnership with Age UK. The exercise sessions took the form of a warm up followed by simple dance routines.
Our first appearance on stage was to back BBC Radio Lancashire’s Sally Naden in a simple dance routine, we were spotted by a local care home and asked to perform for their residents.
After 10 years the GOs are still going strong and performing in all sorts of weird and wonderful venues. Over those 10 years artists have come and gone, and, apart from myself who started the GOs, we have one remaining original member who turned 80 in August 2018
Our venues range from Theatres, Community Halls, Churches, Clubs, Pubs, Care Homes, and Day Centres
Here we are enjoying a bit of fun and games at one of our regular local spots, King Street Day Centre Leyland, with a bit of interactive YMCA and a recent visit to a Care Home
We do a lot of birthday and anniversary celebrations. We had a lovely time helping to celebrate a 97th birthday party recently with some of the relatives of the birthday girl.
