Love Can Build a Bridge is a new concert by Archway Choirs, in collaboration with The Chestnut Tree Charity, which will take place at The Royal Hippodrome Theatre on May 15.

This event has been conceived by Archway Choirs Director Jane Reeves to help raise funds.

Chestnut Tree House is a children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and cares for 300 children and young adults who suffer from progressive life-shortening conditions.

Archway Choirs are a thriving community choir based in Seaford and Eastbourne running successfully for the last six years and boasting some 250 active members. The choirs consist of two main groups, Contemporary and Gospel, which cover everything from choral songs such as ‘Lacrimosa’ by Mozart, to modern day hits such as ‘Skyfall’ by Adele.

The ‘Love Can Build a Bridge’ concert marks a significant milestone for the Archway Choir which launched its vision for the future - building on the success and embarking on new ambitions. The Archway wants to retain the fundamental values that have so successfully underpinned the choirs, but also to continue improving the standard of performance. The concert will include a live band and two children’s choirs from schools in Eastbourne and Seaford. Tickets available from www.royalhippodrome.com or 01323 802020.
