The Grand Hotel in Brighton hosted a party to launch The Halloween Horror Show 2015, last week.
THE event, which will take place on Saturday, October 31, will be raising funds for The Sussex Beacon – a Brighton based charity offering specialist care and support to men, women and families affected by HIV.
The theme of the evening, which also takes place at the Grand Hotel Brighton, was revealed as Haunted Hollywood and organisers announced that half the tables had already been sold for the main event in October. However, the identity of the host, who will play the role of an old film director, remains a closely guarded secret.
During the launch, guests heard the testimony of a HIV positive woman who has benefited from The Sussex Beacon’s services.
Simon Dowe, CEO at The Sussex Beacon, said: “Hearing about the impact that a positive HIV diagnoses can have on a person’s life from someone who has experienced it is a powerful message. At The Sussex Beacon we work to support people affected by HIV physically, emotionally and socially to help them live independent and healthy lives”.
The Halloween Horror Show 2015 will help The Sussex Beacon to raise the 1.2million pounds it needs to keep its services running. Guests of the main event will enjoy a night of entertainment whilst tucking in to a three-course Grand Halloween feast followed by dancing until the early hours.
The launch party was attended by the Mayor Elect of Brighton and Hove, Cllr Lynda Hyde, as well as representatives from many local businesses in the city. Guests enjoyed a sneak preview of the events’ entertainment, plus drinks and canapés.
The Sussex Beacon is working with leading entertainment design agency the E3 Group to produce the fundraising Ball. The E3 Group were responsible for the production of last year’s event which raised over £20,000 for the charity.
