The Day of Compassion On Sunday October 17th

In answer to the Mayor’s request, our City has proven that it is a City of Compassion – with many organisations offering their services and expertise entirely for free, enabling us all to experience many special and creative expressions of kindness. There will be an inspirational workshop for bereaved children at the Fabrica Art Gallery, a Death Café and musical performances at the Unitarian Church and also at the Service of Compassion at the Dome. There will be special meditation sessions at the Friends’ Meeting House and also a photographic exhibition entitled Portraits of Selflessness. Another art and photographic exhibition will be held in The Jubilee Library entitled Serene City, which will show our City during the pandemic, and also at its most beautiful.

From 11am to 2pm there will be stalls in The Brighton Dome representing organisations of all kinds that support and care for us in our City.

The Service of Compassion

At the heart of this day will be the Service of Compassion at The Brighton Dome. Tickets are free. This service will include musical performances from the Cheer Up Mollys – our City’s five-piece folk and acoustic band, the Florentine Quartet and the superb Soul of the City Choir. There will be poetry readings from the acclaimed local poet Grace Nichols, and also readings by local support workers and our own MPs – Peter Kyle, Caroline Lucas and Lloyd Russell-Moyle. You will hear some very personal memories by those in the front line and also learn how the children of our City feel about the pandemic.

This is a day for you. We invite you to be part of it and the people of our City… it promises to be very special.
