The Who, Noel Gallagher, Kasabian, Russell Brand, Noel Fielding plus many other major surprises will perform at the Royal Albert Hall for TCT from 26th – 31st March 2007.
They have become legendary dates in the show-business calendar with massive names of rock and comedy giving their time year after year for one of the entertainment industry’s favourite charities. Now, in their seventh year, the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall are once again shaping up to be some of the most memorable nights of 2007.
Over two exclusive nights, Noel Gallagher will be joined by a host of very special guests; a not-to-be-missed headlining show by Kasabian; a night of comedy hosted by men-of-the-moment Russell Brand and Noel Fielding; and Saturday night with arguably the best live band in the world, The Who, are some of the highlights of the week with much, much more to be announced over the coming weeks.
The Who were the first band to perform at a Teenage Cancer Trust show back in 2000, a gig which, on its own, made £1.2 million for the charity.
The gigs were the brainchild of The Who’s Roger Daltrey CBE, patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, who has once again persuaded the best British talent available across rock, pop and comedy to give up their time to raise money for this unique charity.
Announcing this year’s line-up, Roger Daltrey said: “Over the years these shows have really made a massive difference to the money available to build TCT units in NHS hospitals. They also give our teenagers the moral support to help fight this terrible disease”.
Event Merchandising is delighted to be involved in the Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts
The aim of the shows is to raise funds for desperately needed teenage cancer units. TCT units, which are all built in NHS hospitals, are improving survival rates for teenagers with cancer by an estimated 15%. There are currently 7 TCT units – they each cost over 2 million to build and another 15 are needed to ensure every teenager with cancer can have access to one. Over the past seven years these extraordinary series of shows have led directly to the development of three major Teenage Cancer Trust units across the country.
A delightful range of merchandise has been created for the Ballet. Event products will tour the country with Alice in Wonderland, Giselle and the Nutcracker. Products such as fairy wands, chocolate shoes, and dancing queen t-shirts have been created.

Event are delighted to be appointed as the merchandiser for the Roundhouse. The Roundhouse is a north London landmark venue presenting an international programme of high quality events for diverse audiences.
This magnificent Grade II* listed building, was originally built in 1846 as an engine shed and is recognised as an outstanding example of mid-19th century architecture, particularly its innovative use of cast and wrought iron to support the slate roof. Its elegant and robust detailing and internal size are all historically significant. Its use as a steam engine repair shed didn’t last long due to rapid technology advances and soon the Roundhouse was being used as a bonded warehouse by Gilbey’s Gin. Then in 1964 playwright Arnold Wesker established Centre 42 at the Roundhouse, named after the trade union movement Article 42 stating that arts should be for everyone. This provided the stage for a legendary, cutting edge performing arts venue. Some of the most memorable theatrical performances in the ’60s and ’70s were staged here. Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Peter Brook and The Living Theatre of New York all performed at the Roundhouse during this period.
