                            or drop in on us at St Elisabeth's , Victoria Drive. We will next be there on Wednesday 21st September, for our AGM, at 7.30.

In May 2016 we performed HMS Pinafore, always popular, but this year our audiences we given an extra treat as we were supported by Southern Youth Ballet with an excerpt from Pineapple Poll.

News Release

June 2015 – May2016

Outreach Singing Workshops

 -   Eastbourne Gilbert and Sullivan Society are delighted to announce a successful bid to the Big Lottery Fund which will enable us to provide free singing workshops to the people of Eastbourne.

-   Throughout the year we will hold blocks of workshops at different venues around the town endeavouring to serve folk near to where they live.

-   Although in ’blocks’ of 5, and can be viewed as a ‘course’ every session is individual so there no need or expectation  to attend them all.
No experience is necessary, and there is no expectation of commitment.
Even if you think you can’t sing!  We just want you to try it!

-   Our first group of workshops are on Mondays at St Elisabeth’s Church, starting on 29th July. Look out for details.

-   Singing is proven to benefit Physically, Emotionally and Socially. Research suggests that singing releases endorphins which can reduce pain sensation and boost mood.

-   Singing can improve posture, breathing and circulation as well as facial muscle tone.

-   Singing can Increase self-esteem and confidence; provide release from every day tensions.

-   We formed in 1968 and are a friendly bunch. We have seen our members gain from the social and health benefits and this is an opportunity for us to show others how singing can bring pleasure can be enjoyed on so many levels.

The Big Lottery Fund supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities across the UK. We are responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes and invest over £650 million a year in projects big and small in health, education, environment and charitable purposes.

Since June 2004 we have awarded over £8 billion to projects that make a difference to people and communities in need, from early years intervention to commemorative travel funding for World War Two veterans.

Since the National Lottery began in 1994, £33 billion has been raised and more than 450,000 grants awarded.
