City Rocks

The first Rock Concert to be held in the City of London
on behalf of the new Lord Mayor of the City of London's Charity Appeal

February 22, 2011


City Rocks the first major rock concert ever to be held in the City of London is to be staged on 22 February 2011 on behalf of the new Lord Mayor of the City of London's Charity Appeal, produced by rock concert impresario Harvey Goldsmith CBE and world famous lyricist Don Black OBE.

For the first time in its 600 year history, the Guildhall, one of the most iconic buildings in the City and home to many traditional ceremonies will be transformed into a rock venue for 700 people.

Rock legend Bryan Adams will headline the performance which will be attended by the great, the good, and the influential in the City of London including the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.  Adams live performances have established him as one of the world's best rock singers of our time, performing over 120 concerts a year somewhere in the world.

The VIP reception, concert and after-party will be held as a one-off occasion to raise funds for Coram, the UK's first-ever children's charity and RedR the disaster relief charity, the two charities chosen by the recently elected Lord Mayor, Alderman Michael Bear, as beneficiaries during his year of office in 2011.

It is hoped that the event will raise in excess of £200,000 for the Appeal.  As part of the evening, there will be an auction to be conducted by celebrity auctioneer Nick Nugent, who will be flying in from Dublin for the occasion.  He originally became famous as Ireland's leading bloodstock auctioneer, where his outstandingly entertaining performances have led to him being in demand in fundraising auctions throughout the world.

The auction will include "money can't buy" items including, for instance, the necklace worn by superstar Angelina Jolie to the premiere of her recent movie "Salt". With it will be a personal note from Angelina herself to the lucky bidder and a certificate of authenticity.  The necklace is a beautiful black spinel piece with 74.35 carats comprising 47 of the stunning black stones, cushion shape, set in rose gold, made for Angelina by her private jeweller, Robert Procop with whom she has also developed a special jewellery collection in support of her own charity Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

A committee of 150 chaired by City lawyer, Neil Murray, is masterminding City Rocks which will be the first and biggest of the charitable happenings to be held during the Lord Mayor's year of office.

Five co-sponsors are supporting the event.  They are Canary Wharf Group, two City banks Eurohypo AG and Westdeutsche ImmobilienBank AG, Stephenson Harwood, City law firm, and waste-to-energy firm, Advanced Plasma Power.

It is no coincidence that the date of the event on 22 February 2011 is the eve of the birthday of Handel, the 18th century composer.  Handel was one of the first Governors of Coram, the lead charity for the Lord Mayor's Appeal, and in his day he was arguably the first internationally known music artist.  Music remains an important part of Coram's culture ? and music therapy is an important part of their work on behalf of vulnerable children.

Tickets are available at £600 from cityrocks@coram.org.uk or City Rocks Box Office: 020 7520 0324.  The dress code for the evening is "Rock Chic", somewhat different to the normal black tie or grey suited garb of the Guildhall's traditionally formal occasions! 
For further information visit the website www.cityrocks.org.uk 

Proceeds from the Lord Mayor's Appeal 2011 Bear Necessities  Building Better Lives are distributed between Coram and RedR.

Coram www.corum.org.uk  the UK's first children's charity, has been creating better chances for children since 1739. Established by Thomas Coram as the Foundling Hospital in Bloomsbury, as a home for abandoned children dying on London's streets, Coram has developed a range of programmes that tackle separation and loss and restore hope for the children of tomorrow.  Coram gives practical and emotional help to more than 10,000 vulnerable children, young people and their families every year, and reaches over 800,000 children in 4,000 primary schools per year nationwide through Coram Life Education, giving students the support and courage to take responsibility for their own lives.

RedR  www.redr.org.uk

Each year millions of people around the world are affected by natural disaster and conflict. RedR UK works internationally to improve the effectiveness of disaster relief, by ensuring that the right people, with the right skills are available to respond to emergencies, to help save and rebuild lives. RedR delivers essential technical and humanitarian training and support to aid agencies and their staff, in the UK and overseas in countries such as Haiti, Pakistan and Sudan. The charity also provides skilled RedR Members - professionals such as engineers, logisticians and health workers - to humanitarian programmes around the globe.

Lord Mayor Alderman Michael Bear

Alderman Michael Bear, who served as Sheriff of the City in 2007-2008, is a leading figure in the property and construction industries and has a long history heading inner-city regeneration projects, including Spitalfields, in the east of the City. A trained civil engineer, Alderman Bear is Regeneration Director at Hammerson plc, MD of Balfour Beatty Property and a non-executive director of Arup.
