Concert for Caring
Join the ALLIANCE and partners for a night of music and celebration at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall.
The ALLIANCE is very pleased to announce the return of a Concert for Caring. After two successful concerts in 2014 and 2019, we’re bringing together new artists and partners for another night of music and celebration on 10th September 2023.
The last few years have put immense strain on unpaid carers, health and social care, and third sector organisations that support many people to live well. It’s time we thank and celebrate them for the immeasurable work they have and continue to deliver.
We therefore invite you to join us for an evening of performances from some of Scotland’s finest musical talents, as well as stories from our great community of caring.
We are delighted to announce that Glasgow legends Altered Images and album-chart topper Callum Beattie will be joining our line-up. More information on the line-up can be found here. Look out for more information and announcements of the full line-up over the coming weeks.
The concert will be hosted by renowned Scottish comedian and radio host Des Clarke.
The ALLIANCE will be hosting a pre-concert reception with partners working across the third sector, and health and social care. For more information on our partners visit here.
The ALLIANCE is pleased to work with Regular Music, and thanks all reception partners.
ALLIANCE Chief Executive Officer, Sara Redmond says:
“The ALLIANCE is pleased to be hosting this pioneering concert to celebrate the importance of caring in our society and of those who care. We all have a need to be cared for, we cherish those we care for, and we have an incredible workforce across our public services who care. This concert is a chance to raise awareness of the value of caring and those who care, and celebrate their contribution through the power of music. “
ALLIANCE Director and Concert Committee Chair, Irene Oldfather, says:
“So delighted to be part of the third ALLIANCE Concert for Caring which celebrates carers across all settings in Scotland. It’s important that we all take the time to say thank you to those who go the extra mile, and look after some of our most vulnerable citizens. Thank you to all of you, and especially to our unpaid carers who often have no breaks and little time for themselves.
Music is a universal medium that can promote wellbeing and make us all feel good. We’re so grateful to Mark Mackie and Regular Music for once again enabling us to come together to celebrate and to Tommy Whitelaw, ALLIANCE National Lead for Caring, for organising such an amazing event!
Join us on the night!”
