This Is Nottingham raises thousands for Teenage Cancer Trust

Nottingham based actress Vicky McClure’s Nottingham fundraiser raised thousands for teenagers with cancer.

This Is Nottingham took place on December 3 at the Metronome.

The music event’s line-up was curated by Vicky McClure and recognised the talent of local musicians.

The event was the first of its kind outside of London.

At the event Vicky McClure said: “There are two wards here in Nottingham, one at Nottingham City Hospital and one at Queen’s Medical Centre.

“I have been to both and honestly cannot tell you how important these wards are.”

Teenage Cancer Trust supports young people with cancer, making sure a diagnosis does not stop patients from living life to the full.

This Is Nottingham was the first event the actress has launched since being recognised as the first Teenage Cancer Trust Icon.

Kingdom Rapper was the first support act to take to the stage, it was his first time performing live however this was not noticeable.

Optimistic lyricism and vocals made for an upbeat performance that got the crowd pumped.

The artist brought the vibes with cool tunes including his latest song House In The Country.

St Anns based performer, Jah Digga, incorporated spoken word to his set, sending powerful messages to the audience.

His artistry was demonstrated with heartwarming tunes including Grandma’s Place and powerful songs like Bully which made for an exceptional set.

Headliner, Bru-C  won the MOBO Award for Best Newcomer on November 30.

He brought the energy in a fast-paced set with the crowd going feral.

The combination of drum and bass and rap made for an electric show supporting Teenage Cancer Trust.

The rapper played popular tracks including Freedom, You & I and No Excuses.

He surprised the crowd with his unreleased track Clart which was released the week after.

The 400 capacity gig raised money through raffle ticket sales and This Is Nottingham merchandise profits going to the charity.

The Metronome was donated to host the event to support the charities work.

Case studies were presented throughout the event showing patients fighting cancer and how Teenage Cancer Trust makes a difference.
