For immediate release.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus will be helping raise funds for Brighton and Hove LGBT Switchboard whilst on the search for the ultimate gay song during their “Guilty Treasures” show this coming 4th May.
Mark Elsworth, lead trustee of Switchboard, said ‘We are delighted that Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is supporting us and, as a local LGBT charity, we appreciate the support which the community gives us. We have had a difficult year but, thanks to the help we have had from community groups and the public at large, our future looks more secure than it did. This will allow us to continue to provide help line and counselling services to all sections of the LGBT community and to continue our process of engaging with the community to improve services.’
Adam Betteridge, a Chorus trustee, has added “For some time now, it has been a core objective of Brighton Gay Mens Chorus as a registered charity to support our community through music and laughter. It is with immense enthusiasm that we continue this tradition during our 2 night run at the Fringe by helping raise funds for such crucial charities as Brighton and Hove LGBT Switchboard as well as the Abandoned and Destitute Children’s Appeal Fund”.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus was last seen performing to a sell out crowd at the Brighton Dome in December with their “Pull A Cracker” Christmas show, receiving in the process 5 star reviews from publications such as the Evening Argus.
The “Guilty Treasures” show is being performed as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival on both 4th and 5th May at 7.30 in St. Nicholas Church, Dyke Road. Tickets are priced at £12 each (£10 concession) and are available via the Chorus website www.brightongmc.org or via the Fringe Festival box office.
