For the first time ever, Comic Relief will bring together the biggest names in comedy for a special one-off event
More acts have been announced to join English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding at London’s SSE Arena Wembley in support of charity, Streets of London.
Clean Bandit, Years & Years and Not3s are the latest names to join the bill, with Clean Bandit promising a full band performance.
The special event taking place on Thursday 20 December 2018 will also welcome Dua Lipa and Grace Carter to the stage for full performances, but special appearances by Bastille, Sigrid, Mabel, Jax Jones, and Ticketmaster New For 2019 pick Dermot Kennedy.
Now in its fifth year, Ellie, an ambassador for the charity leads the event. Launched in 2014 at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, the gigs have raised over £300,000 for the charity. Previous years’ events have taken place at various London venues, including The Roundhouse in 2015 and London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall in 2016 and 2017.
Dawn O’Porter will appear as guest host.
Streets of London recently commented on Goulding’s continued partnership with the charity. “At a time when – according to recent figures – there are a record number of people sleeping rough in London, this extra funding to support Streets of London’s work is more welcome than ever,” the charity said. “To date, Streets of London concerts featuring Ellie Goulding have raised more than £300,000 in aid of the charity. This year’s event will increase that total even further, so we’re very grateful to Ellie for her ongoing support.”
