ANNIE Lennox and Jude Law are among the celebrities taking part in this year’s Peace One Day Celebration taking place at the Royal Albert Hall, in London, on September 21, 2008.

Following the tremendous success of last year’s Peace One Day Concert, which featured Annie Lennox, Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens), Corinne Bailey Rae, James Morrison, Marc Almond and Kate Nash, organisers have announced that this year’s event will feature an appearance from Annie Lennox and several other very special artists.

Further announcements will be made over the next few weeks, but it has been revealed that there will be contributions from some terrific guests, including Jude Law, as well as a gala screening of The Day After Peace, the acclaimed new documentary film from the director and founder of Peace One Day, Jeremy Gilley.

The film, which received a rapturous reception at its World Premiere during the 61st Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 19), features Kofi Annan, The Dalai Lama, Angelina Jolie, Jude Law, Annie Lennox and Jonny Lee Miller.

Tickets for this year’s Peace One Day Celebration go on sale at 9am on May 23 and can be purchased via this website link

In what is proving to be a successful period for Jeremy Gilley, the organiser was also awarded Campaigner of the Year in Britain’s Best 2008 on Sunday, May 18.
