The Grammy-winning musician will be joined by young people from our units across the country for her soundcheck before they join the audience and watch her take to the stage.

Foxes, whose real name is Louisa Rose Allen, was inspired to invite young people with cancer along on her tour after visiting our unit at UCLH in June. She performed songs and took part in a music therapy workshop, and has now decided to become more involved with us.

Louisa said: 

The young people I've met through Teenage Cancer Trust are so inspiring. You don't stop being young because you have cancer; they still love all the normal stuff like music and hanging out with friends. I'm so pleased to be able to invite some of these guys along on my tour and I'm proud to team up with a charity that does so much work with young people.

Young people will meet and spend time with Foxes, attend the sound check, and then attend her gig in the following locations:

02 Academy, Glasgow - 22 October

Sheffield Plug - 23 October

Manchester Club Academy - 24 October

Nottingham Rescue Rooms - 26 October

02 Academy, Birmingham - 29 October

Life doesn't have to stop when you get cancer. Spending time with Foxes should be a really positive and fun experience for young people who are going through a tough time. It is great that Louisa and the band are giving up their time to support young people with cancer.
