Award winning, chart topper Lily Allen, most recently back at the top of the charts with her latest release ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, after taking a break, is to perform at a major one-off concert, City Rocks at the Royal Albert Hall on 1 April 2014 in support of Coram, the World’s oldest children’s charity which is celebrating its 275th birthday this year.

Lily will be joined on the night by additional guests – including Maverick Sabre, who has been championed by BBC 1 and 1Xtra’s MistaJam’s ‘Ones to Watch’ and whose debut album charted at No.2 in the UK chart; and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, most recently a finalist on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and due to launch her new album later this month.

More performers will be announced shortly.

City Rocks at the Royal Albert Hall is being produced by leading impresario Harvey Goldsmith CBE, world class lyricist, Don Black OBE and Rocket Music Entertainment.

Coram, the charity for whom this spectacular concert is being held, and which has been helping vulnerable children to have better chances in life since it was first established as the Foundling Hospital in 1739, has been selected by the Royal Albert Hall as its first ever Charity of the Year for this event.

Coram has had a long and unique history linked to music and the arts ever since distinguished artists such as Handel, who was one of its first Governors, gave fundraising musical performances in support of the charity and even donated a manuscript of his famous music ‘Messiah’.
