The It’s Not Unusual hitmaker said prior to the event: ‘It’s such a pleasure to be part of this amazing evening.
I’ve worked with Gary Brooker [the show’s musical director] before and to be asked to perform with these great musicians for such a wonderful and important charity is an honour.
‘The Royal Marsden is an incredible hospital helping thousands of patients each year and I hope we can help in a small way to raise vital funds needed to continue their life saving work.’
Money raised by the event is set to help the construction of the hospital’s new cancer treatment and research facility called the Oak Cancer centre.
