We've joined forces with Brighton Housing Trust to launch Choir with No Name Brighton!

Brighton Housing Trust and The Choir with No Name are delighted to announce a new partnership to launch a choir for homeless and marginalised people in Brighton, with plans for doors to open to members in June 2018.  We celebrated the launch with a singing trip up the iconic British Airways i360, with attendees belting out Primal Scream’s “Moving on Up” as they ascended.

The Brighton choir will offer some of the most marginalised members of the community the opportunity to make friends, grow in confidence and sing away their worries in a safe and non-judgmental environment, empowering them to flourish as individuals and move away from homelessness long term.

The partnership will see Brighton Housing Trust employ a part-time Choir Manager to run the day to day management of choir rehearsals, performances and volunteers. This role will also provide choir members with direct personal support, signposting and access to services provided by Brighton Housing Trust and other organisations.

The Choir with No Name will continue to do what we do best – the music. We will be looking to employ a talented freelance choir director who will lead the choir at rehearsals, gigs and outreach singing workshops, ensuring members reach their full musical potential. 

Andy Winter, CEO BHT said:

“This is such an exciting opportunity for marginalised people, for Brighton and Hove, and for Brighton Housing Trust.  We are so pleased to be working with The Choir with No Name whose work I have admired for many years.  Most importantly, this gives clients of BHT and other organisations the opportunity to get together, sing and provide each other with support.”

Marie Benton, founder and Chief Executive of The Choir with No Name said:

“We’re delighted to be coming to Brighton and also delighted to be working with Brighton Housing Trust.  As well as the choir manager and choir director roles we’ll be looking for volunteers to help with the choir and also local businesses who want to help out and get involved, so do get in touch!”
