Teenage Cancer Trust’s all-star, 10-night line up at the Royal Albert Hall in association with Nomura, marks the charity’s 10th year of music and comedy. Following Depeche Mode incredible performance on 17 February, the full series continues with: Them Crooked Vultures (Monday 22 March), Jimmy Carr, Rhod Gilbert and Noel Fielding (Tuesday 23), Suede (Wednesday 24), Noel Gallagher (Thursday 25 and Friday 26), Arctic Monkeys (Saturday 27), JLS (Sunday 28), The Specials (Monday 29), The Who (Tuesday 30). A limited number of corporate hospitality packages are available for some nights.

Teenage Cancer Trust believes that teenagers should not have to stop being teenagers, just because they have cancer. The charity funds and develops specialist teenage cancer units within NHS hospitals which enable young people to be treated together, by an expert team, in the best possible environment. Teenage Cancer Trust focuses on quality of life and aims to improve the chances of survival for young people with cancer. Since its inception in 1990, the charity has opened a total of 14 units and plans to build enough so that, by 2012, every single teenager in the UK can have access to the support they provide.
