About Concerts for Carers
It was April 2020, the UK was in lockdown with Covid-19 taking hold across the country at a rapid rate and frontline workers were under immense pressure.
Our Trustees, Mark Lambert, Steve Gotkine and Aidan de Brunner wanted to say thank you to all NHS and paid Care workers, but they wanted to find a way to say it big and say it forever.
They looked at their combined extensive experience and knowledge of the live event industry and found a way to bring the whole UK live music industry together.
Concerts for Carers was born.
A registered not-for-profit charity whose mission is to promote the mental health and wellbeing of all NHS workers and paid Carers.
We're proud that our partnered venues including the Scottish Event Campus (OVO Hydro & SEC Armadillo), OVO Arena Wembley, Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, Wolves Halls, King Tut's, Eventim Apollo, Unit Nine, Bush Hall, EAG Presents and many others make positive social contributions with free tickets for our beneficiaries.
Over £3.5 million pounds worth of tickets have been given away since our launch in the summer of 2021 to huge events such as Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, Little Mix, Blur, Liam Gallagher, Peter Kay, Luno Presents All Points East, UFC Fight Night and FIA Formula E London Grand E Prix.
Concerts for Carers works with over 70 venues across the UK, whilst actively seeking new opportunities at new venues to continue to grow our offering.
We have also had the support of incredible artists such as Snow Patrol, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Max George.
Here’s what some of our beneficiaries have said…
