All Saints & Enter Shikari Set To Play Intimate Brighton Gigs In Aid Of Music Therapy Charity

This September the 'sophisticated and stylish popsters' All Saints will play an intimate gig in Brighton, on behalf of Nordoff Robbins, the UK's largest independent music therapy charity.

Also on the same night another Brighton venue will host an explosive set from arena headliners Enter Shikari, whose incendiary performances mark them out as one of the best live bands in the UK.

Enter Shikari said:

"It's been a while since we last played the Concorde 2 in Brighton, but to be able to return there in support of a charity that do amazing things with music to improve people"s lives seems like a great excuse"

The gigs are part of the ground-breaking Get Loud campaign, with tickets for all shows costing just £10, and proceeds going to raise awareness of the work Nordoff Robbins does in their own centres and in their wide spanning partner organisations. 

Taking place on Wednesday 26th September 2018, Get Loud will present ten UK artists performing at the same time in ten intimate locations around the UK. 


Julie Whelan, Chief Executive of Nordoff Robbins said:

"Campaigns like Get Loud are hugely important in helping us raise awareness of our work and ensuring that we can reach all those who need our support. 

"We know how powerful our music therapy can be – offering communication, connection and in some cases, a vital lifeline to many people."

Nordoff Robbins' music therapists are trained to the highest of standards on their Master of Music Therapy programme and work in schools, nurseries, hospitals, care homes, prisons and community centres, to make sure that they are reaching and supporting the UK's most vulnerable and isolated people, when and where they need help most.  

Since the campaigns inception in 2016, the charity have celebrated the power of music with some of the most influential names in music, raising £280,000 to date, and funding the delivery of music therapy to thousands of vulnerable people across the UK.

All Saints are proud to be representing the charity in Brighton and added: 

"This is such a worthy campaign, highlighting the power of music and raising awareness for a charity which uses it to change lives."

Get Loud 2018 takes place on 26th September. All Saints play Komedia Brighton and  Enter Shikari play Concorde 2. For details on all ten artists and venues CLICK HERE.
