The Rock Galas of the 80’s were formed when the UK economy was gripped by inflation, strikes and high unemployment following recession. Britain’s youth had little hope and no future. The Trust called upon supporters including Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Brian May and Tina Turner to form ‘super groups’, raising money to help the most disadvantaged young people.
Rock Gala 2010 will be broadcast on Sunday 19 December 2010 on Sky's 3D channel.
“Our last performance at the Rock Gala had one aim…to raise money for youngsters struggling to find work after a recession. Unfortunately we find ourselves in the same situation twenty years on and I’m helping the best way I know how” Brian May
“We are thrilled to have the support of ambassadors like Brian May and Jools Holland,” says Martina Milburn, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust. “The money raised will allow us to make massive changes to the lives of thousands of young people during a very difficult time”.
The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2010 will be screened on Sky 3D December 19th and Sky Arts December 31st.
