The Best of…Rock Musicals is taking place on the 12th May to raise money for The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, which was set up in 1997 by the Waller family in memory of their son and brother, Charlie, who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. This charity aims to offer 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.
This special event is devised and directed by Hugh Wooldridge who says “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.”
The Best of…Rock Musicals will take place at the Eventim Apollo on the 12th May at 4pm and 8pm.
