Singing superstar Russell Watson is set to perform an exclusive Greatest Hits gig for charity in Manchester.

The ‘People’s Tenor’ will take to the stage at the beautiful Bridgewater Hall, in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

The fundraising event will see the Salford-born classical singer give a rare performance of his hits, including Land of Hope and Glory, O Sole Mio and Bring Him Home.

Sponsored by Morson Group, all money raised at the exclusive concert will go to help the Teenage Cancer Trust continue its incredible mission.

The charity helps to fund specialist hospital units, nurses and youth workers across the UK that provide age-appropriate care and emotional support.

Every day, seven people in the UK aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer – and the Teenage Cancer Trust exists to support those young people through their cancer journey.

The Russell Watson concert has been organised by the charity’s North West corporate advisory board and aims to build a deeper network of connections with businesses and leaders in the region.

2021 as a festive soiree, is now taking place on 15 June as a summer celebration of togetherness.
