The NOSCARS is Napier Operatic Society’s annual awards ceremony put on by the Napier Operatic Social Club.

Established in 2013, The NOSCARS recognise the talent and hard work performed by members of the society – both on and off stage.

The NOSCARS are an opportunity for members of all faucets of the society to come together and celebrate their yearly achievements, whilst enjoying canapés and bubbles catered specially for the event. A black-tie event, The NOSCARS give the members an opportunity to dress in their favourite attire and be photographed on the red carpet whilst enjoying the decadently decorated Tabard Theatre auditorium.

The NOSCARS provides a night of laughter – a chance for those usually onstage and behind – to sit back and enjoy the entertainment they so often provide.
