1st December 2011
For immediate release.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is delighted to announce that, as of last night, a total of 1,320 out of 1,400 tickets had been confirmed as sold for their Pull A Cracker Christmas show at the Brighton Dome.
And, as a direct result of this ticket selling bonanza, the Dome Box Office agreed yesterday to release just under 100 further seats for sale to the general public. These seats had previously been held back by the Dome, subject to experiencing exceptional demand for the show.
So, with just under two weeks to go before the December 11th charity show, which includes appearances from guest stars June Brown and Zoe Lyons, all indications are that the show will be a sell out success!
Marking the occasion, a special award was presented to Chorus member Rob Macdonald, who physically sold the 1,200th ticket. Rob is pictured here receiving his award from Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus chairman Stephen Tucker during a recent rehearsal for their World Aids Day charity concert (which will be taking place at 7.30 on Dec 1 at St Marys Church, Kemp Town).
Mr Tucker, who also teaches full time at a local school, said “It is a real testament to all the hard work that the Chorus members and our supporters have put in to marketing the Christmas show to friends, families and fans. With all proceeds being shared with the Sussex Beacon, this really is a great way to start the festive season. We are all so excited and very much look forward to putting on a fantastic show!”
The last remaining Dome show tickets are priced at £7.50 and are available to purchase via the Chorus website at www.brightongmc.org or by calling the Dome Box Office 01273 709709.
