Team during Winter Pride event at Brighton Marina

We took the opportunity to go bowling at the Marina during Winter Pride - and two of our number won prizes.

Craig and Craig's Civil Partnership

On the first day that this was possible Nationwide and the first ever to take place in Worthing, Craig from the choir and his partner Craig had their civil partnership. They'd invited the choir to sing and of course we happily obliged. There was also a lot of tea and cakes during the reception at The Grand, Brighton in the afternoon.

World AIDS Day concert 2005

For this we performed a selection of English music - Warlock, Skempton, Britten and others.
As Liam, our chair at the time said afterwards, "We had an avalanche of positive feedback from audience members saying how well the choir had sung, what an interesting and varied repertoire it was, and how professional and polished the whole evening was."
We also welcomed the City of Brighton Gay Men's Chorus as our guests.

"Confessions from a Dance Floor" 'launch party'

We were asked if we'd like to sing a couple of Madonna songs to enhance the party atmosphere of an evening to enjoy Madonna's latest album release at The Bank by Seven Dials in Brighton. Ever up to the challenge, those of us who could make it turned up for a chance to camp it up just a little and it was quite a good bit of fun.

Watch out Madonna!

Singing at the Royal Albert Hall!

We performed Carmina Burana for our World AIDS Days concert in Brighton in December 2004, but we had an offer to sing it again with around 1000 other sings at the Royal Albert Hall in London. We hesitated for about 3 microseconds then said yes! So here we are in July the following year.



Well, here we were at the Albert Monument, those of us lucky enough to be singing Carmina Burana (again!) at the Royal Albert Hall.

Handel's Coronation Anthems

A selection of Handel's well loved Coronation Anthems plus other celebratory tunes were there for the listening during our Brighton Festival Fringe performance at the Church of St. Michael and All Angels.

Purcell and Handel at the Royal Academy

We were invited to perform as guests of the Pink Singers. We'd just like to say it's a lovely venue with great acoustics. Thank you.
