Pull A Cracker with the Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus promised a night of Christmas favourites and pop and rock classics to get you in the festive mood, and they certainly did not disappoint! The sell out crowd were treated to a vast collection of songs, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary; from Leonard Cohen to Mariah Carey, with a ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’ and ‘Sister Act’ tribute thrown in for good measure. And if that wasn’t enough, there was compering from the brilliantly funny local lady Zoe Lyons and even an appearance from everyone’s favourite Eastender June Brown aka. Dot Cotton! It was a magical evening and judging by the rapturous applause and standing ovation at the end that was a feeling shared by everyone there. Just brilliant!
