Formed in 1997, The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust was set up by the Waller family in memory of their son and brother, Charlie, who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. The Trust offers support and education to those affected by depression and mental illness. Its vision is of a world where people understand and talk openly about depression; where young people are educated on the importance of staying mentally well, and where treatment is available to everyone who needs it.
With the help of musical directors Stuart Morley (We Will Rock You) and Kevin Amos (Jesus Christ Superstar), The Best of… Rock Musicals will again be devised and directed by Hugh Wooldridge who said: “This event is a must for all who love rock musicals and musical theatre. With the very best artistes in the world coming together to celebrate the very best in rock musicals from the last 50 years. Come along again on our 20th birthday and join in the fun and support this most splendid charity in the name of Charlie Waller, whilst raising the roof of the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith.”
