Ed Sheeran to Perform at Union Chapel Charity Event E! News UK

One of the world’s greatest musical artists, Ed Sheeran, will launch the new Wellstock x ‘For One Night Only’ event series, a new fundraising initiative designed to create extraordinary experiences that money can’t buy – instead, fans enter a charity raffle for a chance to be there.

The first event, which will take place on Tuesday 11 October, will support Shout, the UK’s first and only free, 24/7 confidential mental health text-based support service, powered by Mental Health Innovations – a digital mental health charity founded with support from the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The launch of the series will see Ed Sheeran deliver his first-ever performance at Union Chapel, London on Tuesday 11 October 2022. The multi-award winning singer-songwriter will perform an acoustic set to an audience of a few hundred, who participated in a draw to participate.

Despite the extraordinary demand for Ed’s concerts, with millions of tickets sold for his latest tour and many venues around the world selling out in minutes, there will be no tickets on sale for this event or any other upcoming For One Night Only events. Instead, the only chance to enter is to enter a charity raffle with participants making a voluntary donation of £10 to the For One Night Only Fund which will be donated to Shout. The money raised will allow the service to continue providing lifesaving support to more people in need. Everyone who donates but fails to secure a ticket will receive an exclusive video from the event.

For a chance to win two tickets to the charity raffle to attend For One Night Only presents Ed Sheeran, text ED to 84903 (texts will be charged at your network’s standard rate) or visit foronenightonly.org to enter online or by mail. 300 pairs of tickets are available.

The first For One Night Only event was developed in conjunction with ‘Wellstock’, an initiative created by Will Young which aims to raise awareness and funds for a variety of mental health charities. Wellstock x For One Night Only was created with the kind support of Chase, Marks and Spencer and ASOS and thanks to these partners, money raised from the event will go towards supporting Shout.

Ed Sheeran says:
“I am delighted to announce that I have partnered with For One Night Only for this very special one-off concert. This is the first in a series of events they will be creating and it will be a brilliant evening at a venue intimate and special.

“For One Night Only is hosting the event in partnership with Will Young and his ‘Wellstock’ initiative and it will help raise funds for the mental health service Shout, which does important work providing free 24-hour text support and 7 days a week to thousands of people every day.

“The mental health conversation is so important. We all have mental health, we all need to talk about it, and it’s also necessary to have places to go when we’re struggling. You have the chance to join me in London on October 11, 2022 by entering the charity raffle at foronenightonly.org and you can support Shout by donating £10.

“It’s for one night only and no tickets will be on sale for the event. Hope to see you there. Ed.”
