Cancer Research UK Bring Back Prestigious Sound & Vision Music Event13 February 2020 - Press release
Cancer Research UK have announced the return of their prestigious Sound & Vision music fundraiser, which will take place this year at Abbey Road Studios on March 26.
Sound & Vision is one of CRUK’s flagship music events and has been held at Abbey Road since 2006, and was founded by the late Sir George Martin. So it’s fitting that 2020’s event will be a celebration of the world famous Studio, The Beatles and all the other artists who have recorded there.
Hosted by Davina McCall, Texas and Jack Savoretti will be headlining the event with the legendary Fat Tony on DJ duties. CRUK are proud to welcome Giles Martin to talk about Abbey Road and its connection with The Beatles and their legacy.
The evening will include a three-course dinner, drinks and live performances, an exclusive art exhibition and access to Abbey Road’s display of archive music technology. Guests will also have the opportunity to be photographed in the iconic studio entrance and a replica of John Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls-Royce.
Artworks in the auction will include pieces from Ed Champman Mosaics, Charles Uzzell Edwards, Denis O’Regan, Mischa Richter, Louis Sidoli and street artist Bambi – with pieces featuring Prince, David Bowie, Madonna, Amy Winehouse, Mick Jagger, and Elvis among others.
To date Sound & Vision has raised nearly £2 million towards Cancer Research UK’s life saving work. Sound & Vision 2020 promises a remarkable evening for all, while aiming to raise over £450,000 for Stand Up To Cancer. (SU2C).
