In support of the Kenny Thomas Family and The Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre
19.30 Tuesday 6th June, 2017 - Under The Bridge, Fulham Road, London SW6 1HS
A Night For Christina: The stars are most definitely coming out for this one-off night in support of the Kenny Thomas Family and The Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre. See a stunning line-up of 80s legends including Tony Hadley, Midge Ure, Kim Wilde, Martin Fry, Go West, Nik Kershaw, Heaven 17, T'Pau and Living In A Box ft Kenny Thomas perform some of their biggest hits live with an all star band. The 80s was arguably the most innovative decade in music history and "A Night For Christina" brings you a group of artists who, between them, were rarely out of the charts during this wonderful time for music. This is your opportunity to see them up close and personal in a small west London venue, so put on your dancing shoes and help us raise the roof and raise some funds for 4 year old Christina Thomas and our charity partner.
Kenny Thomas and The Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre: Kenny Thomas is one of the UK's most celebrated soul singers. Starting out in the early 90s with his smash hits "Thinking About Your Love", "Outstanding" and "Best Of You", Kenny went on to be a Brit Award nominee and achieve multi-platinum sales for his album Voices. Constantly producing new music, Kenny has continued to thrill soul audiences at his many live appearances up and down the country. Last year Kenny replaced original vocalist Richard Darbyshire and took over the vocal spot in 80s band Living In A Box.
In February this year, Kenny's 4 year old daughter Christina was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The impact on the family of receiving this news is barely imaginable. Through buying a ticket, you are helping us raise funds to support the family, search for interventions to extend Christina's life and to help fund research into this devastating disease, which so often affects the very youngest of children, through the Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre. Thank you, from all the artists taking part.
Established in 1997, the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at The University Of Nottingham brings together a multi-disciplinary team of leading healthcare professionals and researchers ─ all experts in their fields, and all committed to improving our understanding of childhood brain tumours. Their team of experts draw on a huge range of experience in paediatrics, neurosciences, oncology, imaging, pharmaceutical sciences and cellular genetics. Their findings guide national and international developments in brain tumour research and clinical practice, leading to new methods of research to help find a cure, whilst minimising the risk of disability.
