Seven nights of concerts, comedy and fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust was kicked off on 27 March 2017 by X-Factor pop star Olly Murs, supported by M.O.
These Teenage Cancer Gigs are the charity’s flagship annual fundraiser raising millions to provide specialist care for young people with cancer.
The pop star promised a night of guaranteed entertainment, and certainly did not disappoint! With hits including Dear Darlin’, Heart Skips a Beat and Troublemaker, energetic Olly had the crowd up on their feet from the start.
Earlier in the day, both Olly and M.O. attended a music workshop with teenagers from Teenage Cancer Trust funded cancer units around the UK. Assisted by members of the Hall’s own Albert’s Band, they spent the afternoon playing instruments and writing songs together, before performing them in front of the band and members of staff.
