Men: Have You Got The East Brighton X Factor?

Men in Brighton are invited to become part of great new community choir in East Brighton run by the excellent Phil Milburn – a friend of The Men’s Network.

The East Brighton Vocality project has created especially for East Brighton ! It’s essentially a community development project using singing and is completely free to participants.

If you are concerned that you a bit more East Brighton than East 17 (who were a popular male singing combo back in the day)  then you can go along to a FREE taster session to find out if you got the East Brighton X-Factor.

The sessions are open to all – so you can bring the women and girls in you life too – and men and boys are being particularly targeted to help ensure the choir is representative of the whole community.

So why not grab some male friends and relatives and go and enjoy the benefits of community singing. It’s fun, exciting, healthy, sociable, creative and will lift your spirits like nothing else !

No experience is needed and everyone is welcome, from absolute beginners to experienced crooners. The choir will  sing popular songs from the 40’s to 00’s, old & new favourites, plus inspiring music from around the world. You can help choose the songs that are  sung !

There’s a programme of tasters over the next few weeks in Whitehawk and Woodingdean, then a 10 week course starting on Jan 19th.

There are FREE tasters this week as follows:

Thurs Jan 12th         7 – 8.30 pm                    St Cuthmans Church, Whitehawk,

Sat Jan 14th              1130 – 1230                  Woodingdean Youth Centre

Then the 10 week course starts Thursday January 19th at St Cuthmans Church (7 – 8.30pm) in conjunction with the Whitehawk Inn.

MEN – PLEASE SUPPORT THIS GREAT INITIATIVE AND IF YOU’VE GOT MEN AND BOYS IN YOUR LIFE WHO WOULD TO TAKE PART PLEASE SEND THEM ALONG.

There are also opportunities for people who volunteer to help the project happen and keep the project going in the future. For more information contact:
