The Big Christmas Singalong! Thursday 13th Dec, 7.30pm, Brighton Dome, ticket price £15 (£12 concessions)
The Choir with No Name’s Big Christmas Singalong! is the highlight of the Brighton Christmas calendar, with audience members coming back year after year to join in with a host of festive favourites, from ‘White Christmas to ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ and everything in between. This year the charity will be joined by the brand new Brighton choir, which will take to the legendary Dome stage for the first time.
The Choir with No Name Brighton, run in partnership with BHT, opened its doors in August this year, and is already 30 members strong and growing. They rehearse every Monday at One Church in the city centre, and each rehearsal is followed by a hot meal together cooked by a team of volunteers. Members, who are largely from the homeless and recovery community, are offered an opportunity to make friends, learn new skills and grow in confidence, all though the power of singing together in a safe, non-judgmental space.
Andy Winter, CEO BHT said:
“We are thrilled to be running our own CWNN Brighton, having admired the work of CWNN for many years. The membership numbers of the choir are growing every week and the feedback from choir members and volunteers has been so positive and uplifting. I can’t wait to hear our choir sing at the Big Christmas Singalong at the Brighton Dome; I know they will make us all feel immensely humble and proud”.
Choir with No Name HQ:
“Our choirs provide a platform for members to sing their hearts out among good friends – a hugely effective way of building confidence and general wellbeing, enabling members to re-establish their place in the world and move away from homelessness long term. Our Big Christmas singalong is the highlight of the year for so many of our members, offering them the chance associate Christmas with something positive, around a time of year that can be extremely tough for homeless and marginalised people.”
