Taking place this Sunday at the Trafalgar Studios, the evening will feature song,dance and comedy with all the money being raised to help those affected by the fire.

The line up is set to include Jason Manford, Mark Thomas, Dreamgirls star Tyrone Huntley, Wicked star Rachel Tucker, West End composers Stiles and Drewe, playwright, novelist, critic and broadcaster Bonnie Greer and the West End Gospel Choir.

Talking about the concert Giles Terera said: “I’m sure for all of us our immediate response is to want to try and reach out and help, either as an individual or collectively. The community that has suffered this horror has always been a strong, close knit, diverse, creative one. As an artistic community we aim for those same values. At the same time it is a community which has been marginalised and ignored for a very long time. So as well as the vital response of trying to contribute financially and materially we have an opportunity to come together stand in solidarity with those directly affected and say this should not have happened.”

The evening is also set to feature contributions from Nikki Amuka-Bird, Julie Atherton,Rikki Beadle-Blair, Vikash Bhai, Dame Judi Dench, Noma Dumezweni, Clare Foster, Bonnie Greer, Cassidy Janson, Alexia Khadime, David McAlmont, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Omar F Okai Company,  Earl Okin, Jon Robyns, Claire Sweeney, Rakhee Thakrar, Mark Thomas and Gok Wan.

Tickets for the concert at the Trafalgar Studios on Sunday 25th June cost between £25-£45 and are available to purchase here. For those who can’t attend the concert but want to contribute visit: https://www.gofundme.com/grenfell-tower-fire-fund
