We're thrilled to unveil the official 2019 Teenage Cancer Gigs t-shirt, designed by renowned British designer Tom Hingston!
Tom is an award-winning creative director and designer. He's collaborated with some of the biggest legends in the music industry, including The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, and Lady Gaga.
You'll be able to get your hands on Tom's awesome Teenage Cancer Gigs t-shirt from our merch stand in the Royal Albert Hall at Door 6 or from the Royal Albert Hall online shop!
As part of his work with us, Tom recently shared his design skills in a t-shirt design workshop at his London studio with a group of young people with cancer. Inspired by 4 key themes associated with live music - Energy, Electricity, Volume, Chaos - the group of young people drew on their personal experiences to develop their ideas into some amazing t-shirts, with the help of Tom and his team!
Working with Teenage Cancer Trust has been a hugely rewarding process - it's opened up all kinds of different dialogues with the young people we've met. Their energy and ideas have inspired in abundance - and I'm proud of what we've created together.
Last year, Hingston Studio marked its 20th anniversary through an exclusive collaboration and exhibition with Paul Smith. Some of Hingston Studio's most iconic record sleeves were reimagined as clothing and light-based installations, with profits from the sale of works donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
