Actually Gay Men's Chorus

Open Rehearsal...... Actually!   Choirs are looking for new singers....and non singers!

Actually Gay Men's Chorus

Actually Gay Men’s and Actually Gay Women’s Choruses will be holding an ‘open rehearsal’ on Thursday, April 17.

The choirs are staging the event to give anyone interested in joining a singing group or chorus, or anyone who has not had the opportunity to hear either choruses, the chance to see and hear what we do.

Perhaps you've just not been around at any of our performance dates or couldn't afford to go to one of their concerts. This is a great opportunity for you to hear us close and live.

On the evening there will be lots of information available about joining either chorus – no singing experience is necessary – we like to give everyone a chance!

We're are also looking for non-singing members as well to help in any of our teams such as PR/marketing, fundraising, production, lighting, helping out at rehearsals, the list goes on and on.  The choirs always need the help of skilled members, or volunteers if singing is not for you.

If you are thinking about joining a singing group or chorus, or want to be involved in a flourishing community group then this is a great opportunity to see and hear what we do, and meet some of the members of both choirs.

We’re a sociable bunch of people from all walks of life, who have had a lot of fun together over the years, and have even more planned in the coming years(Watch this space!)

The Actually Choruses are very music focused, and our repertoires are very varied. We give people the opportunity to do, (and discover they enjoy), pieces of music they would never have imagined singing.

If you just want to come and have a listen, you're very welcome also.  All we ask is for a donation on the door – whatever you can afford, which will go to Actually CIC to help us continue to grow, giving more of you the opportunity to get involved in the organisation, and enjoy that wonderful tonic: singing!

If you can’t make it, or just want more information about membership, non singing membership, volunteering etc, then drop us an email: 

Actually Gay Men's Chorus and Actually Gay Women’s Chorus will be opening our doors to you at 7.50pm, Thursday, April 17 at St Andrew’s Church, Waterloo St, Hove. We'll be done by about 9pm. 

Actually CIC is a not for profit Community Interest Company, registered in England No. 06845768

Interested in Joining Actually Gay Men's Chorus?...then May is a great time to get involved.  If you have never sung with others and are unsure that it would be for you, then why not come along to our informal Open rehearsal in April - at St Andrews Church, Waterloo Street, Hove. 

No previous experience of singing with a chorus is necessary, just the desire to sing.

Twas The Night Before Christmas 2013
As always, Christmas really started for us with our traditional annual production of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’, on Monday 23rd December, a real highlight of the festive season, St Andrew's Church was packed to the rafters for a fun evening of both traditional and more unusual 

musical choices - a triumph for both Actually Gay Men's, and Actually Gay Women's Choruses!

We'd like to thank everyone that came this (last!) year, and look forward to your continued support.

On this occasion, as well as helping to keep the choruses running, the concert also raised another £578.84 for donation to charity.  All while we enjoyed ourselves!

Brighton & Hove's Actually Gay Men's Chorus was set up in 2005 with the specific aim of providing a place where gay men could socialise, have fun and develop their vocal and musical skills in a unique environment and perform to the public while raising money for local LGBT charities. Members benefit from the wide ranging experience of the music team led by musical director Jason Pimblett. Their 'home' is the beautiful grade one listed St Andrews Church in Waterloo Street, Hove, where they rehearse and present many of their performances.
The chorus are proud to be members of Actually Community Interest Company, a not for profit organisation that manages them and other community projects including the recently established and hugely successful Actually Gay Women's Chorus.

 Our performances continue to be varied and exciting and will not be affected by the fantastic news that we have at long last released our album!
