Support acts for Bru-C charity gig at Nottingham Metronome announced

Jah Digga and Kingdom Rapper will join headliner Bru-C at This is Nottingham fundraiser for Teenage Cancer Trust on Saturday 3 December

Jah Digga and Kingdom Rapper have joined the bill for charity Teenage Cancer Trust’s This is Nottingham fundraiser at Nottingham Metronome on 3 December

The musicians will support the headliner for the event, drum and bass artist Bru-C, who is fresh from his successful Australian and New Zealand tour

The event is being held in aid of charity Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that supports young people with cancer aged 13-24 across the UK

The gig has been organised by Nottingham-based actress Vicky McClure, and the name of the event, which exclusively features talent from the city, is a homage to her BAFTA winning performance in This is England

Jah Digger is a rapper, spoken word performer and podcaster from St Ann’s in the city who recently performed on the same bill as Hollywood star Idris Elba. Earlier this year he released the heartfelt single “Grandma’s Place” alongside Ghetts and Georgia Copeland

Jah Digger said:

“When I found out Vicky was putting on this event I really wanted to be involved. Youth is capable of great things so the fact this is aimed at young people and helping young people is exciting. A Nottingham gig is always special.”

Kingdom Rapper’s Nottingham roots and positive anti-violence lyrics are at the heart of his music and most recent album The Changing Room.

Kingdom Rapper said:

“This is going to be an amazing night, showcasing some great talent. The fact this event is supporting such a great cause is the best reason to get involved. It will be a great night of Nottingham music.”

Demand for the 400-capacity gig at the Metronome is high, and fans can purchase tickets for £15 each on the Metronome website.

For the past 30 years Teenage Cancer Trust has organised an annual series of fundraising gigs at The Royal Albert Hall, but this is the charity’s first big music event in Nottingham.

Headliner Bru-C said:

“I am so excited to play this event. I’m excited because it’s in Nottingham, 10 minutes from my house! It’s for a good cause, it’s for Vicky, it’s for Nottingham City, our family. So make sure you are there.”
