For immediate release.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is pleased to announce their contribution to Pride Arts Festival with their Pride show entitled Bed & Breakfast.
“Is it a holiday romance, or just a dirty weekend? High season or low rent? Check in with Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus for a thoroughly musical probing of the ups and downs of the seaside mini-break. Whatever the weather, you are promised a warm welcome, a varied menu and some unexpected encounters. Getting away from it all can be an adventure, and whether you end up in a Single, a Double, or get a King-size upgrade, the BrightonGMC hopes you have a pleasant stay… and far too much fun to be bothered with a good night’s sleep!”
Chairman Paul Charlton said:
“After a very successful opening of the Brighton Fringe Festival, with two packed shows, we are looking forward to entertain our audience with our summer show ahead of the Brighton Pride celebrations. We have some exciting new additions to our repertoire, to which I’m sworn to secrecy by the Music Team, but with a title like Bed & Breakfast, it’s safe to say that there will be love in the air of Brighton & Hove this summer.”
