Nordoff Robbins is the UK’s largest independent music charity. The charity celebrates the connection and joy music can bring to those with life-limiting illnesses, physical disabilities or those facing emotional challenges, offering support to adults and children through dedicated one to one and group music therapy sessions.

Speaking about Nordoff Robbins, punk rock troubadour Frank Turner, who will be performing at The Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth says; “My visit to Nordoff Robbins earlier this year, to attend a session with some autistic beneficiaries, was both eye-opening and moving; to see real, tangible progress being made, in real time, for people who really need it, was a unique experience for me. They have my full support, and I look forward to doing more with them”.
Louise Redknapp, who will be performing at Omera, London on the night adds; “Having recently come back to my own music, I know how cathartic that experience of reconnection has been, so to support a charity which uses music to connect with people facing so many challenges in life, is really important to me”.
