Friendly Fires to headline Able2UK concert for disabled awareness

More News

Plus…. Mystery Jets, Billy Bragg, Zane Lowe (DJ Set), Frank Turner, Miles Kane, Steve Craddock with mystery guests still to be announced

Able2UK have announced that Friendly Fires are to headline a fundraiser gig for disabled awareness at Camden’s Roundhouse on 20th August 2012. Organised by Howard Thorpe the event will also see Frank Turner (solo), Miles Kane, Steve Cradock and a mystery guest performing.
 
Money raised from the concert will go towards improving facilities for those with disabilities at music venues across the UK. The monies will create a brand new Able2UK area at UK festivals which will replace the standard disabled viewing platforms forthose in wheelchairs.
 
The profits raised will also help those who require special seating arrangements, hearing loops and even an easier way to purchase refreshments at live events, as well as protection from the sun (visors, hats etc.) and cold weather (extra blankets etc.) if required. This is not only for wheelchair users, but for the deaf, blind and those with co-ordination barriers.
“To have a line-up of this caliber is a dream come true and will be the perfect way to launch what I hope will become an annual event promoting disabled awareness.”
Howard Thorpe, Able2UK founder
Oscar nominated actor, producer and major Hollywood player Mark Wahlberg has commissioned a special film to draw attention to close friend Howard Thorpe’s incredible on-going efforts to raise awareness and funds for this hugely-deserving cause.
“People with disabilities still face prejudice on a daily basis. Things aren’t going to change overnight but if everybody can do their bit we can start making a change no matter how small it is.”
Mark Wahlberg
Advance ticket price is £30.00 with all profits going to the Able2UK organisation.
