Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall is back for 2022 and not a moment too soon.
The lost shows of the last two years meant Teenage Cancer Trust missed out on around £2 million in vital funds to support young people when they needed help most. Young people facing cancer have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic over the last two years – from damaging delays in diagnosis to increased strains on young people’s mental health and resilience, making it even harder to get their lives, education or early career back on track after treatment.
Specialist care and support delivered by Teenage Cancer Trust’s unstoppable nurses and youth support teams has been a lifeline to young people throughout the pandemic. Young people with cancer have never needed that support more, which is why getting back on stage at the Royal Albert Hall plays such a vital part in making sure no young person faces cancer alone.
And eligible young people previously cared for at Teenage Cancer Trust hospital units around the country will visit the Royal Albert Hall throughout the week of concerts, and enjoy all the action from VIP seating.
Ever since The Who reformed for the first Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall show in 2000, the annual events have witnessed some extraordinary, once in a lifetime shows from Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn performing together for the first time ever in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus the likes of Oasis, Muse, Niles Rogers & CHIC, Florence + The Machine among many others. Some of the brightest lights in comedy have lit up the stage too, with an annual evening featuring the likes of Mo Gilligan, Kevin Bridges, Miranda Hart, Kerry Godliman, John Bishop, Frankie Boyle, Noel Fielding, Jon Richardson, Russell Howard, Russell Brand, James Corden and many more.
