Legends annual Brighton Pride cabaret fundraiser on Sunday, August 6 raised a fantastic £3,650.75 for the Rainbow Fund.
Hosted and organised by Lola Lasagne the lineup of cabaret stars appearing during the afternoon and evening included Mary Mac, Mrs Moore, Rose Garden, Martha D’Arthur, Miss Jason, Sally Vate, Stephanie Von Klitz, Cassidy Connors, Beverly Ball Crusher, Lucinda Lashes, Jason Lee, Spice, Dave Lynn, Davina Sparkle, Jennie Castell, Kara Van Park and Maisie Trollette who, on the eve of her 84th birthday had everyone up and dancing inside Legends, on the terrace and beyond onto Marine Parade with a traditional East End Knees Up Medley.
All artists waived their fees to appear and the total raised included a £1,000 personal donation from Tony Chapman the owner of Legends.
Special mention for the Legends bar staff who worked their socks off all day and night.
