A gay choir’s members are hoping to hit a high note by putting on a show to raise money for a charity that supports gay men living with HIV in the East End.

The London Gay Men’s Chorus ensemble will perform the show, called Good Vibrations, as part of a fundraising drive for the Positive East charity, based in Mile End Road.

It’s the second time the group has worked with the charity, and musical director Simon Sharp said: “Our aims are deeply intertwined - both of us are working to change negative preconceptions, and we’re both working towards a more enriched society.”

The show will feature great music delivered with the “razzle dazzle” the group is known for, he added.

The event will raise funds specifically for Positive East’s services for gay men in the capital.

Tickets for the one-off show at St Pancras Church in central London on Saturday, April 13, can be bought at or by calling 020 7791 9353.
