Like The Beatles at Shea Stadium in '66, the legendary line-up at Woodstock in '69, or Elvis' Las Vegas residencies in the 70s, if you were there you were part of rock 'n' roll history. Ok, we might be overdoing it a bit, but all those who came down to A Night For Christina in 2017 definitely came away feeling that they'd been part of something very special indeed. The chance to see so many respected artists from the 80s and early 90s, in such an intimate venue and at the same time raise money for an incredibly worthy cause, was what it was all about. Two years later, the artists who performed that night have agreed to come together again to help their friend Kenny Thomas and his little girl, Christina. Please support them by buying a ticket and bringing your partners, your friends, heck, even invite the neighbours to be a part of this most spectacular of nights - A Night For Christina 2.

Plus "A Really Special Guest"
Tongues are already wagging, heads are being scratched. Someone who is definitely more than just a special guest will be joining the line-up this year, so we have referred to them as a "really" special guest. We are dying to tell you who it is but we'd rather surprise you!
Hosted by Gary Davies
Legendary DJ Gary Davies will host A Night For Christina 2. Gary's knowledge and understanding of the 80s music scene is unparalleled. Recently returning to national radio on BBC Radio2's Sounds Of The Eighties, Gary is delighted to join the artists in support of Kenny Thomas's daughter Christina for another night of musical fundraising.
A Message From Kenny Thomas
I just wanted to say a personal, heartfelt thank you to you for supporting A Night For Christina 2. I can’t believe it will be two years since the last one, so much has been happening with my daughter Christina. In truth, in 2017, having just got the life-shattering news that my 4 year old daughter had a brain tumour, the very last place in the world I wanted to be was performing on stage at the first A Night For Christina. As I’m sure any parents among you can imagine, I was somewhere between a nightmare and a hard place, yet there were so many wonderful people around me that night who came to extend a helping hand, that my family and I felt truly humbled. The design for the 2019 fundraiser symbolises that gesture, a small hand in a big hand, which sums up A Night For Christina for me. Thanks to the support of so many generous people, we have literally bought time and have now found a treatment for Christina in Europe which, based on early test results, looks very promising. With these cutting edge technologies, no one talks of absolute guarantees, but I will never give up trying to free my daughter from this terrible disease and will do everything in my power to save her. By buying a ticket for A Night For Christina 2 you are standing right behind me and I can’t thank you enough for that. I hope, in return, you have the most fantastic night among some of the greatest 80s artists to grace a stage and people who I am so proud to call my friends.
With love and gratitude,
All profits from A Night For Christina 2 will be going to the Kenny Thomas Family to help with medical expenses for Christina.
