All for charity - the biggest names in music and comedy unite to appear in charity shows
Check our round-up for the best fundraising events across the UK and Ireland. Tickets are on sale now, unless otherwise stated.
Many of the UK and Ireland's leading charities organize fundraising shows up and down the country in the hope that the public will part with a few spare hours to attend and, most importantly, a few spare pounds to help each one in their quest to make life easier for those in peril.
Below is a chronological guide to many such charity events due to take place in the next few months. Please note that prices quoted are exclusive of fees, some of which have been waived or reduced by the ticket agents. Please give, laugh and rock generously.
