Canadian trio Palaye Royale are set to play a one-off, intimate charity show at London’s famous Borderline in aid of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, presented by the Heavy Music Awards.
The show will take place on Monday 17 June 2019, with support from fast-rising UK act Black Futures. Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Thursday 6 June via Ticketweb priced at £20. All proceeds will be donated to Nordoff Robbins. This show will come after a weekend of playing at Isle Of Wight Festival followed by a performance at Download.
Heavy Music Awards co-founder Andy Pritchard said, “We are so proud to be working alongside Nordoff Robbins for this year’s Heavy Music Awards, and we could not be more excited to have Palaye Royale on-board to help raise awareness of this inspiring charity’s work, and obviously to play what will be a crazy show in such an intimate setting. We’d like to express our sincerest gratitude to the band and their team for making this happen.”
For those unfamiliar with Nordoff Robbins, in their own words:
Nordoff Robbins is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to enriching the lives of people affected by life-limiting illness, disability or isolation. They support thousands of people through their own centres and by working in partnership with a wide range of organisations including care homes, schools and hospitals. In the hands of a trained practitioner, music therapy can be used to support people living with a wide range of needs. It can help a child with autism to communicate, unlock forgotten memories for those living with dementia or provide comfort for someone facing a terminal illness. Their music therapists support people to develop their own ways of being musical in order to explore their potential and connect with the world around them. Their music therapists are trained to work flexibly in a range of settings with people of all ages, responding to their specific needs to evoke positive change.
