Other acts who performed at London’s Astoria to support the charity included the Charlatans' Tim Burgess, Chris Difford from Squeeze, Steve Craddock, and Simon Fowler from Ocean Colour Scene, Stephen Fretwell, Candie Payne and The Deafness. All proceeds from the sell out acoustic gig went directly to Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, the largest music therapy charity in the UK which raised over 75,000 pounds from the one gig.

Tim Burgess said: "I'm really happy to be involved with a cause that believes that music is as powerful as I believe it to be."

Pauline Etkin, Managing Director of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, added: "The artists and venue deserve a huge thank you for giving up their valuable time to support us. A Gibson SG guitar was the star prize in the raffle which was conducted on stage before Paul Weller’s headline set.

Paul Weller performed many of his greatest hits acoustically on his Gibson J-45 acoustic accompanied by Steve Craddock which included “Wild Wood”, “You Do Something To Me” and the Jam classics “The Butterfly Collector” and “That’s Entertainment” to name a few.
