Singalong to your favourite Christmas songs at events across Sussex

15 Nov 2019

Get in the Christmas spirit and singalong to beloved carols and classic hits with choirs at venues across the county.

East Sussex Music presents this year’s Big Sing, a series of 12 festive concerts taking place across the county in collaboration with Glyndebourne. In the run-up to Christmas, children from 66 schools will be showcasing their musical talents alongside East Sussex Music’s flagship orchestras, choirs and band.

In September this year, Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival announced that it will manage East Sussex Music (ESM) service and will be lead partner for the East Sussex Music Education Hub. ESM provides music lessons and activities for over 7000 children and young people in East Sussex.

Peter Chivers, Head of Brighton & Hove Music & Arts and East Sussex Music said:

“The Big Sing brings together children from across the region in a celebration of singing and music-making. Singing as part of a large choir is fantastic, not only for musical development but also to enhance a sense of connection with others and to boost well-being.”

The Big Sing concerts will be held at 5.30pm and 7.30pm on:
20 November at The Assembly Hall Theatre, in Tunbridge Wells
28 November at De La Warr Pavilion, in Bexhill on Sea
2 December at White Rock Theatre, in Hastings
3, 4 & 5 December at Kings Centre, in Eastbourne

Tickets are on sale now and are available directly from the venues via the links above.
