British girl group the Sugababes are part of a special charity gig in England this weekend.
The ’Babes will headline a two day festival in Dagenham on Saturday night, and will be followed by classic rockers Status Quo on Sunday night. Also performing will be the Bay City Rollers and David Essex.
The festival will benefit Cancer Research UK and St Dunstan’s – a charity helping blind ex-servicemen.
“The last couple of weeks have been absolutely amazing,” said artistic director Rob Ferguson. “The sun has come out. It’s made a huge difference to sales. We do have the ability to expand past 10,000 [ticket sales]. We’ll keep pushing to the end – we have a 20,000 licence. Every penny is for charity. There is no profit whatsoever.”
Tickets are available through www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
