Professor Green and guests light up Village Underground for Transform Trauma gig

11 Sep 2017

On Saturday 9th September, crowds gathered at the intimate Village Underground in Shoreditch for a lifesaving night of music in aid of our Transform Trauma appeal.

Cooly G opened the show with a lively DJ set, before Dream Mclean stepped in last minute after Not3s unfortunately had to pull out.

Professor Green – joined on stage by Katie Holmes-Smith, fresh from touring with Adele, and Dream Mclean – delivered a set packed full of new songs and hits, closing with an amazing performance of Read All About It.

Before the show he spoke about supporting our Transform Trauma appeal and playing his first London show in three years in aid of the appeal:

“Transform Trauma is really important and I owe my life to the trauma teams who saved me. I am always grateful and I have used my experiences for inspiration for my music.”

700 lucky winners of our competition to win tickets were at the gig, with 20 people also getting to meet the rapper backstage and have photos taken.

After the show The Switch Up took over the venue with over 700 more people queuing round the block for the afterparty with FutureSNDS, Waves and Faded – and special guest Tion Wayne – also in aid of Transform Trauma.

The gig shone a spotlight on trauma, the biggest cause of death and disability for young people – and a leading killer of all age groups – in the UK. Trauma research is critical for driving improvements to save lives and improve recoveries, but it’s desperately underfunded. We want to change that.

The fight doesn’t end here. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the gig – and to all those who entered the competition – as well as those who donated, shouted out on social media, and helped to make it a night to remember.
