As always, Christmas really starts for us with our traditional annual production of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’, on Monday 23rd December, a real highlight of the festive season. It is a fun evening with both traditional and more unusual musical choices, featuring Actually Gay Men's Chorus and Actually Gay Women's Chorus.
Brighton and Hove's Actually Gay Men's Chorus - Tainted Love - When it comes to matters of the heart, little sums up the passion, pain and fragility of emotions more powerfully than a song. Tainted Love, this year’s Pride performance by Actually Gay Men’s Chorus explored the ecstasy, angst, devotion and despair that is love.
A break away from a more traditional repertoire, the Chorus performed iconic songs from the sixties to present day, written by artists such as Adele, U2 and Bryan Adams.
Actually Gay Men's Chorus celebrated some of the classics from musical theatre both past and present.
Presenting the evening was
Monty Python's very own Carol Cleveland.
Also featuring guest soprano Samantha Howard & conducted by Musical Director Jason Pimblett.

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.
