Get Loud for therapy

7 August 2018

Ten shows on one day by established artistes in intimate venues across the country are to take place as part of the Get Loud campaign, supporting music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.

Among acts performing on 26 September are All Saints at Brighton’s Komedia (cap. 400), Lisa Stansfield at Manchester’s Matt & Phred’s (200), The Darkness at The Fleece (450) in Bristol and Everything Everything at London’s Garage (600).

“Campaigns like Get Loud are hugely important in helping us raise awareness of our work and ensuring that we can reach all those who need our support,” says Nordoff Robins chief executive Julie Whelan. “We know how powerful our music therapy can be – offering communication, connection and in some cases, a vital lifeline to many people.”

Started in 2016, Get Loud, which is sponsored by energy supplier SSE, has raised £280,000 for the charity. Tickets for the shows cost £10.
