For the fifth year running, Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus are proud to be organising the annual World Aids Day charity concert at St Mary’s Church, on St. James Street, on Saturday 1st December at 7:30pm.
This year we will be joined by the Rainbow Chorus, the long-standing, and only, LGBT chorus in the city; Resound, Brighton & Hove’s newest male voice ensemble; Qukulele, the LGBT ukulele band; and The Theatre Workshop Choir. The evening will be hosted by the award-winning director, performer, translator and writer Neil Bartlett, OBE.
The concert, with a varied musical repertoire, will provide an opportunity to reflect on the losses many have suffered, as well inspiring those present to celebrate people surviving and fighting HIV and AIDS. The concert will start straight after the annual candlelit vigil at the Aids Memorial in New Steine Gardens, 2 minutes away from St Mary’s Church.
This year, all funds raised through ticket sales and bucket collection will be donated to The Rainbow Fund, the Brighton and Hove based grant-giving fund for local LGBT and HIV/AIDS organisations, set up following the fundraising for the City’s ground-breaking AIDS Memorial to provide a living legacy for the project.
Tickets are £5 and are available online from Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus’ own ticketing website. No booking or transaction fees.
All major credit and debit cards are accepted, or you can pay with your PayPal account. If you wish to pay by cash then tickets will be available on the door.
