Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus promise their most glamorous production yet at the Theatre Royal Brighton on November 30 when they will be Putting On The Glitz.

Chairman Paul Charlton said: “As a community choir we have been enormously privileged to perform in some amazing venues – the Barbican, the Royal Northern College of Music, the Brighton Dome Concert Hall, Pride’s main stage at Preston Park – and not forgetting the BBC studios at White City!

“But, amazingly we have yet to stage a show at Brighton’s iconic Theatre Royal.

“So, as the Chorus approaches the start of its tenth anniversary year, we have decided to put that right, and do so with pizazz and style.

“We are also delighted that our dazzling and fun-filled show will be helping to support the important community work of The Rainbow Fund, the Brighton and Hove based grant-giving fund for local LGBT and HIV/AIDS organisations.

Marc Yarrow, the chorus’ musical director, added: “Choosing music for such a glamorous and glitzy show has proved hugely exciting. A variety of musical genres will be featured, including pop classics and, naturally, a sprinkling of blockbuster show tunes – with many of the numbers being arranged in-house.

“All in all it promises to be an evening to remember, simply the most spectacular and theatrical thing the Chorus have ever done!”

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets on 0844 8717650.
