Become a Friend of the Society

What is ‘The Hugh Gould Friends of The Cecilian Society’?

The Friends of the Society scheme allows alumni, family and friends to support the productions the society puts on each year. Hugh Gould was our first Vice-President, our second President, and was appointed Honorary President in 2002. He served and supported the society, attending almost every show until his death in December 2021. The Hugh Gould Friends of the Cecilian Society scheme furthers Hugh’s legacy of continued support of the Society he helped found.  Hugh has been a cornerstone of the society and has seen it go from strength to strength. This society would not be what it is today without his commitment and care, and he leaves behind a legacy that cannot be overstated. The Friends of the Society scheme allows us to grow and flourish and provides an opportunity for anybody to contribute to this wonderful thing that Hugh has created, and honour the legacy he has left behind.

This year, due to the ongoing pandemic, we have had to postpone our usual February main show. This year’s musical, ‘Cry-Baby’ will now be taking place from the 8th-9th of April 2022 at the Glasgow University Union. This fundraiser aims to cover additional costs the society has had to incur due to the pandemic and also start raising money for our 70th anniversary celebrations, which will take place later this year.
