International superstar Ed Sheeran will perform an intimate gig at London’s iconic Union Chapel on Tuesday 11 October 2022, in aid of Shout - our free, 24/7, confidential text support service for anyone in distress.
The gig will be the first in a series of events from For One Night Only, an innovative fundraising initiative created by HARDER THAN YOU THINK, which will see some of the biggest names in music, entertainment and sport donate their time to create unforgettable, unmissable experiences that money can’t buy - instead, fans enter a charity prize draw for a chance to be there.
Ed Sheeran said:
“The conversation around mental health is such an important one. We all have mental health, we all need to talk about it and there is also a need to have places to go when we are struggling. You have the chance of joining me in London on October 11th 2022 by entering the charity prize draw and you can support Shout by making a £10 donation. It’s For One Night Only and no tickets will be on sale for the event. Hope to see you there."
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY x WELLSTOCK
The first For One Night Only event has been developed in collaboration with Wellstock, an initiative created by singer-songwriter Will Young which is aiming to raise awareness and funds for a variety of mental health charities.
Will Young said:
“The aims [of Wellstock] are to use events to bring mental health awareness to the fore whilst also looking at fundraising and with an overview of acceptance, validation and blowing away the shame that can attach itself to feeling anything other than happiness.
“We are thrilled to align with Shout and For One Night Only to create our first unique event with Ed Sheeran with more to come next year.”
We are proud to be For One Night Only's first charity partner.
Thanks to the kind support of the event’s brand partners, Chase, Marks & Spencer and ASOS, all money raised from the Ed Sheeran gig will be donated to our Shout service, enabling us to continue to provide free, 24/7, confidential mental health support to anyone who needs us.
Victoria Hornby OBE, CEO, Mental Health Innovations, said:
“We are very proud to be a part of For One Night Only, a groundbreaking fundraising and awareness campaign for mental health. Every donation will help us take more conversations that could save lives.
“With the incredible support of Will Young and Ed Sheeran, two of Britain’s most loved musicians, we can let more people across the nation know that we’re here for them, 24/7, whatever they're going through.”
No tickets will be on sale for the event, or any future For One Night Only events.
Instead, members of the public can enter a charity prize draw and make a voluntary donation of £10 to Shout to be in with a chance of one of 300 pairs of tickets to see Ed Sheeran live.
