Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott have announced three free concerts for UK key workers in October 2021.

Paul said “The Coronavirus pandemic should remind everyone, and let no-one forget, that our National Health Service is the most brilliant and significant institution in our lives. The men and women who serve us and care for us, give us hope and sacrifice their own wellbeing, can never be thanked enough. The same can be said for Care Workers who have worked tirelessly to keep people safe. We are just musicians, so there is little we can do but sing for you. By way of appreciation, we announce the following gigs for all frontline NHS staff and Care Workers. To everyone involved; thank you.”

For the NHS workers, the tickets will be available for all NHS frontline staff that work within NHS hospitals across the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners. Any staff that works within the hospital will be eligible to apply for tickets.
