The Brighton Box to launch 2022 calendar for the Sussex Beacon

Graham Robson November 6, 2021

The Brighton Box, the contemporary LGBTQ+ owned art gallery, will be officially launching a 2022 calendar at the Sussex Beacon shop in Kemptown on Saturday, November 13, with a signing by four artists whose works are featured: Keren Bevis, Jack Lynn, Adam Makkai and Christopher Crawford.

The artists, along with many others, showcase Brighton life in its many different forms through the calendar, which will retail for just £14.99.

To make it even more exciting, the event will be hosted by drag artist extraordinaire Candi Rell who is well known on the Brighton scene for her cheeky sense of humour, glamorous demeanour and hugely popular bar and club performances.

Situated in Dukes Lane and now also with a gift shop at Brighton Station, the Brighton Box has become an active member of the community since opening its doors at the end of 2020. Having raised more than £1,200 for the Sussex Beacon since April 2021, Sean Headley from the Brighton Box has announced 50% of all calendar sales will be donated to the charity.

Sean Headley, managing director at the Brighton Box, said “The team at the Brighton Box are absolutely delighted to be, once again, working alongside the Sussex Beacon to raise valuable funds for this wonderful charity.”

Bill Puddicombe, executive director of the Sussex Beacon, added “We are extremely grateful to the Brighton Box and its feature artists, for once again so generously supporting and raising funds for the Sussex Beacon, via the sale of their works. These funds continue to assist our essential work with people living with HIV.”
