‘Wellstock x For One Night Only’, which will benefit several mental health organisations, begins with the acoustic performance. 

Ed Sheeran has announced an intimate one-off concert in London to raise funds for mental health support charity Shout. The  singer-songwriter will perform at the 900-capacity Union Chapel in Islington on Tuesday, October 11 as part of the ‘Wellstock x For One Night Only’ event series. Wellstock, an initiative created by Will Young, aims “to build platform to bring mental health awareness to the fore whilst also looking at fundraising and with an overview of acceptance, validation and blowing away the shame that can attach itself to feeling anything other than happy”.Sheeran’s special acoustic show, which will kick off the series, is being put on in support of Shout, the UK’s first and only free, confidential 24/7 text messaging support service for anyone who is struggling to cope.

Fans’ only chance to attend the gig is by entering a charity prize draw and making a voluntary donation of £10 to the ‘For One Night Only’ fund that will be donated to Shout. You can do so by texting “ED” to 84903 (texts will be charged at your standard network rate) or visiting the official ‘FONO’ website to
