Andy Burnham & Liam Fray announce ‘Raise the Roof’ concert to help Manchester’s homeless

The concert will be headlined by the Courteeners, with Blossoms and a host of other acts also performing.

Some of Manchester’s biggest and most influential bands are aiming to tackle homelessness and raise money for Andy Burnham’s A Bed Every Night scheme that’s supporting people who would be otherwise sleeping rough.

The Raise the Roof concert will take place at the O2 Victoria Warehouse on the evening of Friday 24th May.

Headlined by the Courteeners, Blossoms, Bugzy Malone and Lisa Stansfield, there’ll also be other surprise guests from sport, TV and comedy taking part.

Fans are being asked to make a £10 donation to the Greater Manchester Mayor’s charity, to raise money for A Bed Every Night scheme and support people who would be otherwise sleeping rough.

People need to text ‘RAISE’ to 84988, before midday on Friday 3rd May, to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for the concert.

The public ballot is now open and runs for just over three weeks. 1,600 lucky winners – who will each receive a FREE pair of tickets – will be contacted from Monday May 6.
