The Night of 1000 Voices, the annual, star-studded event celebrating musical theatre at the Royal Albert Hall, is to take place on Spring Bank Holiday Sunday May 6, 2012 and will fundraise for blood cancer charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.


Since 1999, The Night of 1000 Voices has delighted capacity audiences at the Royal Albert Hall. On Spring Bank Holiday Sunday May 6, 2012, the 1000 Voices Massed Choir from all over the British Isles, Stephen Disley (organ) and The City of London Philharmonic will accompany some very special stars from London and New York in a musical night to remember.


Featured in 2012 will be some of the most requested favourites, including songs from Evita, The Lion King, Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misrables and We Will Rock You. These are just some of the great shows which will be given The Night of 1000 Voices treatment, together with a sprinkling of some which may be not quite so well known.


In 2012, The Night of 1000 Voices will be celebrating the Best of British and will again be for the benefit of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is dedicated to saving lives through leading UK research into better treatments and cures for all blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The charity receives no government funding and relies entirely on people coming together to fundraise.


Cathy Gilman, Chief Executive, says: "Since 1960, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has invested in world-class research and survival rates have increased dramatically for patients with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. However, theres still a long way to go and money raised from this evening will help us get closer to a cure. In 2010, The Night of 1000 Voices raised in excess of 140,000.00 a phenomenal sum.


The West Ends distinguished maestros, Stuart Morley and David Firman, will once again supervise the massed musical forces and director Hugh Wooldridge says This evening is a must for all who love musicals. Come along and hear the best performers in the world performing some of the greatest songs. Come and join in the fun; come and raise funds for a most splendid charity whilst raising the roof of the Royal Albert Hall.


The Night of 1000 Voices takes place on Sunday May 6, 2012 at 8.00pm.

Tickets start at 17.50 and are available from the Royal Albert Hall box office on 020 7589 8212 or by visiting www.royalalberthall.com
