'Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride' was performed by LOpSoc on 16th August 2018 in the Harrogate Theatre at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival. The orchestra and stage crew were provided by the venue. The production retained all the main features that originally came from the Annex Run in June 2018. There were, however, changes to the cast as two of the principles were unable to join the company, with the role of The Duke of Dunstable being taken on by Barnaby Wilson and the role of Major Murgatroyd by Ben Walker, creating new dynamics between the trio of men which was enjoyable to watch. The chorus, despite losing some of its original run members, gained new ones, including the Director Abby Pardoe and Musical Director Bridie Strachan.

The production was very well received at the festival. Amber Courage won Best Female Voice and Bridie Strachan, Tim Lutton and Liam Chan were awarded Best Musical Director. Abby Pardoe was nominated for Best Director, Rhona Graham and Tzofia were nominated for Best Costumes and the Chorus were nominated for Best Show.
