The Manor Operatic Society is an amateur operatic society based in Sheffield, England.

The society was formed in the 1950s on Sheffield's Manor estate. It produces the biggest amateur pantomime in England, presented at Sheffield City Hall each year. The society presented its first pantomime in 1970 and has produced a new show every year since then. The shows used to be staged at the Montgomery Theatre but in 1986 the venue was moved to the Sheffield City Hall to cope with demand.[1]

The pantomime attracts a total audience of up to 25,000 each year.[2]
