Sir Mark Rylance and Clean Bandit lead an illustrious line-up at the launch of a new trust supporting the mental wellbeing of young creatives.

There are performances from Clean Bandit, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Chineke! Orchestra, Tomorrow’s Warriors, members of the National Children’s Orchestras of Great Britain, Choir of Westminster School and Future Talent. Surprise artists still to be announced.

In a spectacular of sound and inspiration, the evening also features appearances from members of the fashion world, plus artists and DJs from the queer community. Supported by Heaven and G-A-Y nightclub.

This event launches the Harvey Parker Trust, which provides access to emotional and mental health support for young creatives, including neurodiverse, gender-diverse and marginalised musicians from under-represented communities.

The charity aims to make a positive difference, raising awareness around this vital cause and funds for young artists experiencing mental health crises.

Stand with us as we celebrate and hold in mind the love needed to support the brilliance of young creative talent.

In memory and celebration of Harvey Parker, 2001 – 2021.

This event is organised by the Harvey Parker Trust and all profits will contribute to its aim to make a positive difference to the mental wellbeing of young creatives.

The Southbank Centre supports mental health wellbeing for young creatives as part of our commitment to arts and wellbeing and nurturing new talent.
