20 years after the tragic murder of teenager Stephen Lawrence, music’s biggest names unite for a special concert championing youth and social empowerment. The concert is to raise funds for The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, which helps to develop brighter futures for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
This event sees UK artists and the music industry working together to create a one-off concert and raise awareness and money for the Stephen Lawrence Trust, further providing opportunities for those disadvantaged by their colour, their postcode, their ethnicity or their poverty – across the UK. All the artists will perform tracks specially chosen for their social message.
Through the work of Stephen’s mother, Doreen Lawrence and the Stephen Lawrence Trust, Britain is changing but there is still much more to be done. The SL20 campaign, set up by the Trust to mark this important anniversary, aims to highlight Stephen’s legacy and the vital work undertaken by the charity in his name. This concert will play a pivotal role in the SL20 initiative.
Unity – A Concert for Stephen Lawrence is supported by Mayor of London Boris Johnson as well as Lewisham and Greenwich Council.
The line up includes Emeli Sandé, Rizzle Kicks, Labrinth, Plan B, Jamie Cullum, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental, Ed Sheeran & Soul II Soul with more to be announced.
Service and handling fees are added to the price of each ticket.
