actually fabulous postponed due to covid-19
Dear Friends of Actually,
We're sorry to announce that our summer concerts, Actually Fabulous, have had to be cancelled because of the ongoing pandemic.
We had been really looking forward to sharing an exciting 15th Anniversary performance with you all, full of old favourites, iconic pieces and a really fun medley, but obviously it's much more important that we all stay safe and well.
After careful consideration, we've decided to defer the concert until next year, keeping the dates near to Brighton Pride. The revised dates will be the 30th and 31st July 2021.
Please also note that we are very much hoping that we'll be able to go ahead as planned with our Christmas shows, which are scheduled for 18th and 19th December. We hope you can make it and promise that when we're able to perform for you again, it'll be exactly the start to Christmas we'll all need after this year!
There is something you could do during this difficult period.
At a time when the importance of high-quality, specialised healthcare is in focus for all of us, we would like to ask you to consider supporting The Sussex Beacon. If you are able to, please donate the £14 or £16 you might have spent on tickets to our show towards their invaluable work. The Sussex Beacon provides specialist care and support to people living with HIV, and relies on donations like the ones we make to them, as they receive just 39% of their funding from the government.
From all of us at Actually, I'd like to say a big thank you for your ongoing support. As soon as it's considered safe to do so, we'll be back at St. Andrews singing and enjoying being with our Actually family. We look forward to welcoming you to our Christmas shows.
Until then, please stay home and stay safe.

We're very proud to have delivered on our pledge to support the Sussex Beacon as our nominated charity for 2019, donating £1,200! We have also committed to work with the Beacon again in 2020.
Thank you for your continued support for us and, in turn, for The Sussex Beacon!
Nick Paget, Chair, Actually CIC
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.”
