Brian Ralfe

Producer and The King of Arabia

I was born in Brighton in 1945 & my first interest in show business began in 1958, whilst standing outside the Hippodrome Theatre, Brighton. This was a ‘Mecca’ for stars such as Little Eva, one of the Lana sisters who later became Dusty Springfield, Dickie Henderson, Max Millar, Ken Dodd & the list goes on. The greatest variety shows ever came to the Hippodrome, & I saw them all!

Having caught the ‘showbiz bug’ I worked as a film extra & found myself standing in a field on the Barbara Streisand film set of ‘On a Clear Day’. Around that time I also became interested in politics and became a Labour party supporter, even being nominated for a seat. Not long after that I became a chairman of Pride... we only had one float at the back end of Brighton Festival Parade & boy, did we suffer at the hands of the so called ‘straights’ in Brighton. In 1966 I joined the Merchant Navy, but still show biz called, so I joined the P&O line, entertaining passengers every evening, my last ship being the ‘Canberra’, which I left in 1974. I enjoyed life on the ocean waves so much I joined the RPA doing numerous tours with the Royal Yacht. After leaving the Navy but still yearning for a life on stage, I formed a double act & toured Britain with great success. It was at that time my interest in charity fund raising began, which I am happy to say I am still doing to this day. I started producing shows in the 1970’s, the first being ‘Sound of the Sixties’ at the Dome Theatre here in Brighton, followed by a show

starring Dorothy Squires & a charity show for the victims of the Hillsborough disaster - ‘A Night of a Thousand Stars’; directed by the late Nathan Turner; who directed ‘Doctor Who’ for the BBC. For the last 10 years I have produced this Adult Pantomime, with support from people such as my dear friend June Brown (Dot Cotton in Eastenders). Aside from producing, I have had two appearances in Eastenders & appeared in various documentaries including ‘Brighton Out of the Closet’ for BBC 2 & a series with Liz Smith, called ‘Seaside’. But enough about me... now I would like you to sit back & enjoy our fabulous production of this years Adult Panto... A-ladd-in.

Laurence Knight

the years (`have organ, will travel`!).

Musical Director

Laurence is very pleased to be returning to Brighton – his second season here as Musical Director for Brian Ralfe`s Alternative Pantomimes. Aladdin is his favourite subject, having seen a variety of magic lamps (and lumps) being rubbed up and down the country.

Laurence has spent most of his musical career putting the `camp` in holiday camps, starting in Skegness. He narrowly avoided a career in gynaecology – preferring tickling ivories to ovaries. Since then he has worked as band leader at a number of Butlin`s, Pontin`s and Haven Holiday Centres during the summer months. This work has taken him to most parts of the English and Welsh coasts over

Pantomimes, touring shows and functions fill the rest of his time and these have seen Laurence accompanying the likes of John Inman, Timmy Mallett, Duncan Norvelle, Jimmy Cricket, Bernie Clifton, Keith Harris, and, most recently, Musical Director for Bobby Crush in panto in Newark.

Sussex Beacon

The Sussex Beacon is a purpose built clinical centre for men & women living with HIV in Brighton and Hove, & is one of only two centres of it’s kind in the UK.


The Beacon’s Management Team cares for people via the ten bedded residential unit & provide a series of clinics to support those living with HIV. The Beacon opened in 1992 as a hospice for people dying with AIDS, twenty years later, thanks to huge advancements in drug treatments & local support, it is still going strong. People stay, on average for two weeks in the Unit & visit for a variety of reasons. They may need extra support in adapting to new HIV medication. For whatever reason people stay at the Beacon, the aim is to ensure that when they leave they are able to maintain their health. Palliative and

respite care is provided when it’s needed. HIV is not just a physical health issue, it’s one that spans emotional & psychological issues & this is where the Health Management Services prove vital. By supporting people’s well-being, they are radically improving their quality of life. Services provided, include help for sleep difficulties, anxiety management, self-esteem, confidence building & help with positive choices incorporating support & decision making concerning treatment. This service has just received a major grant from the Elton John Aids Foundation.
