Stand Up and Rock for Crisis Christmas Show / December 2011

By on Wednesday, 9th November 2011 at 9:00 am

The holiday season reminds us home is where the heart is…and sometimes in our busy lives, we need to be reminded that there are people who are not as well off as we are, people who do not have a roof over their heads, people that are wondering where their next meal is going to come from. To mark their 40th anniversary, UK homelessness charity Crisis will be holding a special Stand Up and Rock music and comedy gig at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on Tuesday the 20th of December.

All proceeds from this special Christmastime show will go directly to fund Crisis’s important work and dedication to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change. Both standing and seated tickets are available, with ticket prices ranging from £39.50 to £75.00. Tickets can be purchased from Gigs and Tours here.

Scheduled to perform include Paul Weller, who will be performing a full live set of favourites as well as songs from his latest Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Wake Up the Nation’; Tim Minchin, Graham Coxon, and Jo Brand. The performers will also be joined on stage by The Choir with No Name, an acclaimed choir made up of homeless people, including some that Crisis has helped. The event will be hosted by Ross Noble. More information on the programme can be found on Crisis’s official Web site.
