Zoe LyonsThe Chorus are also honoured to have award winning comedian Zoe Lyons compering the show. Zoe Lyons said “I am totally delighted to be part of the Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus show at the Dome, particularly as it is helping to raise funds for Sussex Beacon who provide such vital services for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. As well as continuing to provide excellent out patient facilities there is an urgent need to raise money to keep the inpatient ward open. By coming to “Pull a Cracker” on Dec 11th, the audience will not only be getting right into the Yule time swing but also contributing towards another great cause this Christmas.”

Other special guests are cabaret artiste Lorraine Bowen and talented vocalist Jodie Spencer. The Chorus will be delighting the crowds with their own brand of pop, disco, fun and festive favourites including classics like I Will Survive, O Holy Night and arguably the campest version of The 12 Days Of Christmas ever performed!
