One of the biggest music artists in the world, Ed Sheeran, will kick off the newly created Wellstock x ‘For One Night Only’ event series, a new fundraising initiative designed to create extraordinary experiences that money cannot buy – instead, fans enter a charity prize draw for a chance to be there.
The first event, which will take place on Tuesday 11th October, will support Shout – the UK’s first and only free, confidential, 24/7 mental health text support service, powered by Mental Health Innovations – a digital mental health charity founded with the support of The Royal Foundation of The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.
The launch of the series will see Ed Sheeran deliver his first ever performance at London’s Union Chapel on Tuesday 11 October 2022. The multi-award winning singer-songwriter will perform an acoustic set in front of an audience of just hundreds of people, who will have entered a prize draw to get in.
Despite the extraordinary demand for Ed’s gigs, with millions of tickets sold for his latest tour and many venues around the world selling out in a matter of minutes, there will be no tickets on sale for this event or any future For One Night Only events. Rather, the only chance of getting in is by entering a charity prize draw with entrants making a voluntary donation of £10 to the For One Night Only Fund that will be donated to Shout. The money raised will enable the service to continue to provide life-saving support to more people in distress. All those who donate but are unsuccessful in securing a ticket will receive an exclusive video from the event.

The first For One Night Only event has been developed in collaboration with Wellstock, an initiative created by Will Young which is aiming to raise awareness and funds for a variety of mental health charities. Wellstock x For One Night Only has been created thanks to the kind support of Chase, Marks and Spencer and ASOS and thanks to these partners the money raised from the event will go to support Shout.
