Ultimate Backstage Experience
During the week of shows we gave young people living with cancer the chance to experience rockstar treatment with our Ultimate Backstage Experience.
Each day we invited a group of around 15 to 16 young people from across the United Kingdom to these one-of-a-kind, money can't buy backstage experiences.
Young people had the chance to take part in music workshops where they collborated with the Royal Albert Hall's expert musicians to craft an original song...which they then performed in front of an invited audience. Some were lucky enough to have The Script, Tom Grennan and Rudimental come along to these workshops!
After their performances, young people were given an Access All Areas backstage tour of the Hall. As well as watching from the best seats in the house, they had the chance to join performers onstage during their shows.
It was a really wonderful week and it was a huge highlight seeing the young people involved in these workshops grow in confidence throughout the day.
The 2019 show was generously supported by associate sponsors American Airlines and Tangle Teezer. Further incredible support is provided by media partners Absolute Radio and Metro.
