Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus re-schedule Summer Show 

Besi Besemar August 19, 2019

Towards the end of June, Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus (BrightonGMC) was rocked by the sudden and untimely death of Richard Tredgett, the fiancé of Chorus Director, Joe Paxton.

IN consultation with Joe, BrightonGMC’s trustees decided to postpone the summer show, originally scheduled for Brighton Pride weekend, until Friday 20 and Saturday, September 21, 2019.

Vaughan Leyshon, BrightonGMC’s Chairman, said: “We hope the Chorus and all its members can be a source of support for Joe during this difficult time. ‘In Time For Pride’, the first fully-fledged show that Joe has created for us, has added importance because we know he shared ideas about its concept with Richard. We are now looking forward to sharing it with our friends, family and supporters.”

Although the show will now take place after Brighton Pride, its theme, about the fight for equality, is timeless. In Time For Pride will introduce a mysterious character travelling through time and space who will be transporting the audience through an exploration of the history of Pride and the music that has run alongside it.

So, book your seat early for what is bound to be an unforgettable journey – one that promises to honour extraordinary people, highlight the transformative power of music and, while fully recognising there is still much work to be done, celebrate how far we have already come.
