Wildlife trust 
and theatre group aim to show the value of nature

Sister Act
Sister Act

Sussex Wildlife Trust hope the phrase ‘My Wild Life’ will be on everyone’s lips this year as they join with the 46 other wildlife trusts in the UK to spread the word that nature matters.

They have teamed up with Brighton Theatre Group who are currently rehearsing for the musical Sister Act to produce a show-stopping image to launch their Sussex campaign.

The hope is to raise awareness of the fabulous views and wonderful walks freely available for everyone to share and enjoy.

Their campaign will promote and engage people with their local wildlife and wild places, encouraging them to submit their own stories showing the value of nature to them as individuals.

Amanda Solomon,, of the Sussex Wildlife Trust, said: “Seaford Head provides an incredible view of one of the most iconic landscapes in the UK: The Seven Sisters chalk cliffs overlooking the English Channel.

“Colette Ridehalgh, who plays nun Sister Mary McCrystal, lives in Headland Avenue, Seaford, and regularly walks on Seaford Head with her family.

“Her ‘sisters’ were stunned by the fabulous views and they attracted more than a few stares while having their picture taken during a break from rehearsals.”

Sister Act, directed by Michael Burnie, tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime.

Fearing for her safety, the cops hide her in a cathedral church disguised as a nun. Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices in a hilarious tribute to the universal power of love and true friendship.

Sister Act runs from Tuesday, April 14, to Saturday, April 18, at 7.45 pm at All Saints Church, The Drive, Hove.
