DUE to demand and to allow as many NHS front line and auxiliary staff as possible attend a show, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott have added a second Free Concert for NHS Workers, this time at the 11,000 capacity London The SSE Arena, Wembley on Thursday, October 15, 2020.

Those eligible for tickets will be all NHS frontline staff that work within NHS hospitals across the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners. Any staff that work within the hospital will be eligible to apply for tickets.

Eligible NHS staff members are entitled to bring one guest with them but will need two tickets (one for them and one for their guest).

Ticket applications must only be made by the NHS member of staff who must bring their valid NHS or Primary Care Trust I.D card (original format, no photocopies) to the show, as ticket checks will be in operation. All tickets will carry the name of the person who made the booking, and this must match the name that is on the NHS or Primary Care Trust I.D card or admission will be refused.

The guest of the eligible NHS staff member will need to be present and enter the venue at the same time.

Tickets will be limited to 2 per person (eligible NHS staff members and one guest) and will be available from 7pm on Tuesday (April 7, 2020) from the following link.

If you secure tickets in error as you are not NHS frontline staff, please contact the ticket provider to arrange cancellation of those tickets.

If you secure tickets and find that you are unable to attend, please contact the ticket provider to arrange cancellation of these tickets, to enable the tickets to be available to other NHS Frontline staff.

A message from Paul…

“The Coronavirus pandemic should remind everyone, and let no-one forget, that our National Health Service is the most brilliant and significant institution in our lives. The men and women who serve us and care for us, give us hope and sacrifice their own wellbeing, can never be thanked enough.

“We are just musicians, so there is little we can do but sing for you. By way of appreciation, we announce the following gig for all frontline NHS staff. From the porters, the cleaners and the drivers, to the doctors and the nurses; thank you.”
