Teenage Cancer Trust has launched a YouTube channel featuring exclusive and compelling music content to raise vital funds to support young people facing cancer across the UK.
Teenage Cancer Trust Unseen is an incredible archive of never-before-seen footage of live performances at the Royal Albert Hall through the years in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
This content will be free for fans to view but the artists and the charity are urging fans to donate.
Driven by our patron Roger Daltrey, a who’s who of world-class musical talent has played Teenage Cancer Trust’s gigs at the Royal Albert Hall over the last 20 years. All so young people with cancer get the support they deserve.
And now music legends are stepping up again, donating this exclusive footage to help make sure every young person with cancer can get support from specialist Teenage Cancer Trust nurses or youth support teams.
Because in 2020 that vital support is at risk.
When you enter the raffle to win the guitar played by The Cure's Robert Smith at their legendary 2014 Royal Albert Hall show you'll also get an email with login details to allow you to watch the whole show online. If you are not a UK resident, you can still enter the raffle to get access to the full show but you will not be eligible to win the guitar.
*The full show will be streamed at 8pm/12am/4am GMT on Sat 31 Oct.

Coronavirus has paused live music. There were no Teenage Cancer Trust Gigs in 2020, in what would have been their 20th anniversary year.
Other fundraising events have also been cancelled, including marathons, community events, and more, resulting in millions of pounds of lost funds.
Unless this money can be replaced, that could mean support for young people with cancer being reduced or stopped entirely.
For young people’s mental, emotional and physical health while going through cancer, during a pandemic, that could be catastrophic.
Without dedicated support, young people with cancer can find that their unique needs remain unseen, invisible and unmet.
Whatever the crisis, Teenage Cancer Trust won’t stop – can’t stop – being there for young people with cancer.
Donate now so young people don’t have to face cancer alone – now or ever.
