West End Grenfell Tower Benefit Concert Sunday 25 June 2017

Songs and SolidarityGiles Terera and Danielle Tarento are presenting a West End fundraising gala evening for the hundreds of families made homeless and the relatives of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire.

SONGS AND SOLIDARITY will take place at Trafalgar Studios 1 on Sunday 25 June at 7.30pm.

Among a host of people taking part are Jason Manford, Mark Thomas, Dreamgirls star Tyrone Huntley, Wicked star Rachel Tucker, West End composers Stiles and Drewe, playwright, novelist, critic and broadcaster Bonnie Greer and the West End Gospel Choir.

Giles Terera said: “I’m sure for all of us our immediate response is to want to try and reach out and help, either as an individual or collectively. The community that has suffered this horror has always been a strong, close knit, diverse, creative one. As an artistic community we aim for those same values. At the same time it is a community which has been marginalised and ignored for a very long time. So as well as the vital response of trying to contribute financially and materially we have an opportunity to come together stand in solidarity with those directly affected and say this should not have happened.

The evening will feature contributions from*: Nikki Amuka-Bird, Julie Atherton,Rikki Beadle-Blair, Vikash Bhai, Dame Judi Dench, Noma Dumezweni, Clare Foster, Bonnie Greer, Tyrone Huntley, Cassidy Janson, Alexia Khadime, David McAlmont, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Omar F Okai Company, Earl Okin, Jon Robyns, Stiles and Drewe, Claire Sweeney, Rakhee Thakrar, Mark Thomas, Rachel Tucker, Gok Wan, West End Gospel Choir.
Musical Director Tim Sutton

The evening will also feature a silent auction with some sensational theatre-related lots!
