For The Record TV has just announced the headliners and full line up for their charity fundraiser for The Brighthelm Centre at the Brighthelm Centre on Friday 12 August 2016. Music is an eclectic mix so there is sure to be something for everyone.

From 1 pm till 5.30 pm there will be live music in the Centre’s garden and Street Diner will be on hand to ensure that gig-goers are well fed with lots of scrumptious food.  Then at 5.45 pm the doors of the Centre’s Auditorium will open for a full programme of entertainment till 11.00 pm.

Acts confirmed for the garden stage are:

  • Jamie Mathias – HEADLINER
  • Matt Murphy
  • Tagore Chayne
  • Dr Jam & Mr Alex
  • Jack Evans
  • Christelle

Christelle, one of the youngest regulars on the local music scene, starts the day with ever popular singer/songwriter Jack Evans following her. Then the day moves from pop folk into some serious guitar work from Brighton’s most popular buskers, Dr Jam & Mr Alex, who lead into a bit of folksy blues from Tagore Chayne.  This really is an eclectic line up with lyrical artist Matt Murphy taking the final slot before headliner, Jamie Mathias.  Mathias is prolific on YouTube with thousands of people appreciating his music; it’s quite a coup to have got him as headliner for this stage.

Acts confirmed for the main stage are:

Jye Whiteman- HEADLINER

  • Something Red
  • Take Manhatten
  • yourgardenday
  • Deirdre Faegre
  • Yazmyn Hendrix
  • Yassi V


Short sets from relative newcomers, singer and keyboard player Yassi V and mistress of the loop pedal, Yazmyn Hendrix, start the Auditorium stage followed by American import but Brighton resident Deirdre Faegre who brings her own brand of mellow folk music to delight your ears.  Once more the eclectic programming for this day continues with Brighton pop trio yourgardenday then some blues from Take Manhatten.  Aussie, Jye Whiteman, and his full band take the headline slot but before them are popular Brit Rock band Something Red. When we said there is something for everyone we really meant it!

Entertainment in the garden will be free, whilst entry into the Brighthelm Centre auditorium for the evening entertainment will be a mere £3.00. You can pay on the door or purchase tickets through the link

There will also be a raffle with lots of fabulous prizes to be won.  The aim of the day is to raise as much money as possible toward the creation of a new playground for the under-privileged children whose pre-school group use the centre.
