Brighton & Hove’s LGBT+ choirs and musicians are again joining forces to put on the 13th annual World Aids Day fundraising concert, and this year Actually Gay Men's Chorus will be hosting the joint number.

The venue, St. Mary’s Church in Kemptown, is a 2 minute walk from the Aids Memorial and the concert is timed to start after the vigil and reading of the names.


Brighton and Hove’s ‘Actually’ Gay Men’s Chorus will be presenting their annual Christmas production ‘Let it Snow’!’ at St Andrew’s Church, Waterloo Street, Hove on Saturday 21st December at 8pm.

Pre-sale has proven so incredibly popular that all tickets have already completely sold out two months in advance of the concert! St Andrew’s will again be full to the rafters as Actually ushers in Christmas in style.

The men from Actually are looking forward to toasting the coming season with their festive chorus favourites such as The Spirit of Christmas and O Holy Night, and of course no Christmas concert is complete without a singalong, so get set to join in with the chorus and sing audience favourites like O Come all ye Faithful and God rest ye Merry Gentlemen.

We have lost three of our men this year, and so the festivities will be interspersed with moments of reflection and memories. The Actually Gay Men’s Chorus is so very grateful for the support we have received in a truly difficult year for all of its members and friends.

Let It Snow will be conducted by Musical Director Samuel Cousins, accompanied by Simon Gray on piano and supported by a brass ensemble throughout. We welcome back special guests Kara Van Park and soprano Karen Orchin, and proceedings will be overseen by Chorus friend and Patron Gerry McCrudden MBE.

Actually Gay Men’s Chorus are proudly fundraising for their members’ chosen charity for 2019, The Sussex Beacon, who provide specialist care and support for men, women and families living with HIV.

Tickets are indeed SOLD OUT, but there is opportunity to waitlist at and also to make a financial contribution online to our chosen charity.

Plans are already afoot to add additional dates to our 2020 season due to popular demand!

Thank you for your support, and a very Merry Christmas! #LoveActually

The Actually Members’ chosen charity for 2019


The Sussex Beacon charity offers specialist care and support for men, women and families living with HIV. Open every day of the year, The Sussex Beacon helps people manage with the everyday realities of living with this life-long condition that has no cure.

Julie Rawcliffe of The Sussex Beacon said, ”Every year, we need to raise over two million pounds to continue providing these vital services to people living with HIV. It is only through the generosity of people like you that we are able to continue our work.”
