Our annual Teenage Cancer Gigs at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall bring together the world's biggest names in music and comedy to raise funds and support young people with cancer.

Andy has previously visited one of our specialist wards for young people with cancer. He received a tour of the ward and met a number of staff, speaking to them about their experiences of working with young people.

Andy Bush, Presenter on Absolute Radio, said:

“I am absolutely thrilled to be compering some of Teenage Cancer Trust’s legendary Royal Albert Hall gigs. This week, I had the privilege of meeting some of charity’s brilliant staff – seeing the work they do first hand really brought home the importance of the vital services they provide.

“The wards and staff are fantastic and it’s clear that having a specially designed environment makes a huge difference to a young person’s experience of cancer. As a huge music fan myself, having the opportunity to be involved in the Royal Albert Hall shows is an honour and I can’t wait to be part of such a special event.”

Andy, who presents on Absolute Radio, will be compering at the following concerts:

  • Tom Grennan - Wednesday 27 March
  • Doves - Friday 29 March
  • The Script - Saturday 30 March

Absolute Radio have been a long-standing media partner of our Royal Albert Hall gigs.

Every penny we raise goes towards our work supporting thousands of young people living with cancer across the UK. The services provided treat people as individuals – the young person first and the cancer diagnosis second.

Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall was conceived and curated by the charity’s Honorary Patron Roger Daltrey CBE, the legendary frontman of The Who, and he still plays a vital role in making the shows happen.

The headline acts for 2019 include multi award-winning collective Rudimental, one of the most successful bands in British chart history, Take That, indie heroes Doves, pop/rock trio The Script, English folk-rockers Levellers and BBC Introducing Artist of the Year Tom Grennan.
