HOMELINK Anniversary Gala

Join us for a celebration of Sussex talent to mark 20 years of helping homeless people into housing

Classical greats, upcoming young performers, community choirs and high-profile names from stage and screen will be joining local people helped by homelessness prevention charity, HOMELINK, to mark the organisation’s 20th Anniversary.

The #homes4homeless Gala will be a huge celebration of Sussex talent, involving soloists, groups, choirs and dance. Classical and contemporary acts will represent all ages and backgrounds, ranging from Glyndebourne soprano Dame Felicity Lott, to Brighton’s Choir With No Name homelessness choir and Lewes Sings Gospel, BBC Gospel Choir of the Year 2014.

Local musical director and conductor, John Hancorn, is producing the Gala and rehearsing with a prison staff choir from HMP Lewes for a one-off performance at the event.

Special VIP guests will be on stage to introduce the acts during the Gala. High-profile HOMELINK supporters with a Sussex connection include comedians Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard and Zoe Lyons, actors Mark Williams, Nimmy March, Toby Stephens and Sophie Okonedo, TV presenter Katie Derham, writer and commentator Simon Fanshawe and 2018 Man Booker Prize winner (and former HOMELINK client) Anna Burns.
