Looking for an unforgettable night out in Brighton? Take to the skies in the i360 on Friday 26 October, where Noel Preston and his band Planet Trousza will entertain guests at a unique fundraising event!
By day, Noel is an unassuming Brighton insurance broker and Managing Partner of Preston Insurance Brokers. But by night, he becomes the city’s answer to the eccentric and gifted Muppets drummer, Animal!

Noel is staging this event at the i360 to raise awareness and vital funds for Teenage Cancer Trust after having first-hand experience of our work. Noel's teenage son, Archie, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer in April 2017. 

After intensive treatment, involving chemotherapy, proton radiation and 36 hours of back and spinal operations, Archie was given the all clear in 2018.

While the diagnosis and treatment brought intense levels of anxiety and uncertainty into their family, Noel feels that the services provided by Teenage Cancer Trust played a massive part in Archie's survival, treatment and comfort. Noel said: 

We are so lucky to still have Archie with us and words cannot express my gratitude to all the hospital staff and the amazing people at Teenage Cancer Trust. I want to play a small part in helping them raise their profile and raise a few pounds to help them continue their amazing work.

The event is open to everybody, with tickets priced at £25 each. There will be an auction with high end lots, including a box and tickets at the Royal Albert Hall for a night at one of our Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall shows in 2019.

All money raised from the evening will go to support our work, so don't miss out on an incredible evening of live music and a night time ride on the iconic i360 - get your tickets now
