ON February 1, 2016, London’s iconic Union Chapel will play host to a very special night of musical entertainment in order to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer, a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.

Kodaline will take the headline slot on the evening, which will see exclusive stripped-back performances from the Dublin band alongside James Morrison, Seafret, Dagny, and Daniel James.

The compere for the evening will be esteemed TV and radio presenter Edith Bowman.

Stand Up To Cancer raises vital funds to support scientists working in NHS hospitals, cancer centres, universities and institutes, speeding up research to get treatments and tests to UK patients who so desperately need them.

Claire Rowney, director of Stand Up To Cancer, commented: “We’re really excited about this event and thrilled to have the support of so many wonderful musicians, it’s set to be a great night of entertainment.

“We’ve made amazing progress against cancer in the past few decades but one in two of us in the UK will develop cancer in our lifetime so we can’t afford to stand still. All the money raised on the night will go directly to Stand Up To Cancer’s work to accelerate new cancer treatments and tests and ultimately it’ll help save more lives.”

Tickets are on sale now and will cost £22.50 – subject to booking fee. You can buy them by clicking here
