Raising awareness of disable charities

Friendly Fires are set to headline a one off concert in aid of disabled charity Able2UK.

Shamefully, disabled people in the UK are still facing a fight for their rights, a fight to be recognised. Charities like Able2UK are busy working on their behalf, and a one off concert should see them gain some much deserved recognition.

Taking place on August 20th, Able2UK will host a one off concert at the Roundhouse. Organised by Howard Thorpe and promoted by Metropolis Music and Coda Agency, the line up contains a few special guests.

Technically on downtime, Friendly Fires have agreed to headline the one off concert. Showing their support for the charity, the band are set to be joined by Frank Turner (performing solo), Miles Kane, Steve Cradock and a mystery guest.

Howard Thorpe, Able2UK founder commented: “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.”

Thorpe is close friends with Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg, who threw his support behind the campaign. “People with disabilities still face prejudice on a daily basis" he said recently. "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.”

Advance tickets are on sale now, priced at £30 each.

Able2UK take control of the Roundhouse on August 20th.
