First X-Factor winner comes to Mustard Tree

STAR WINNER OF 2004 X FACTOR HOSTS EVENT AT THE MUSTARD TREE

The Mustard Tree, Manchester charity supporting and rebuilding the lives of over 8,500 homeless, vulnerable and marginalised people around the city, will be hosting an exclusive Music Night on Friday 10th December at its premises in Ancoats from 7pm to 11pm, with a special guest appearance from Steve Brookstein the first ever winner of ITV’s The X Factor.

Welcoming all music lovers, and those who wish to enjoy some early Christmas cheer, this fantastic evening is a great way to support those in need, whilst enjoying some excellent entertainment. The first ever winner of ITV’s The X Factor, Steve Brookstein, will perform his new charity single at the event with the aim to help the homeless at a time of goodwill. This Christmas single ‘Don’t Give Up’ by Together @Qristmas organisation, on sale 13th December, has been produced solely to raise money to support local homeless charities and features Steve and his wife, jazz singer Eileen Hunter.

100% of profits from the singles will go towards regional homeless charities through StreetSmart, which raises thousands of pounds for homeless charities across UK cities every year, and that includes the Mustard Tree.

As well as several songs by Steve and Eileen, the evening will also feature performances from other musical talents including two live bands, a soloist and a dance group. Whilst enjoying the buzzing atmosphere, why not enjoy a little nibble, with an array of food and drink also on sale. This promises to be an evening of fun, laughter and wonderful music, at a time of year when people should come together and share in goodwill, but when many are alone and lonely.

Steve Brookstein said: “I’m proud to be part of a great team of people doing something honourable at Christmas.  Whether people decide to buy the single, donate to their regional homeless charity or just eat at a STREET SMART restaurant, if it’s because of the awareness we are raising then I’ll feel it’s been worth it.”

Paul Wenham, Chief Executive of the Mustard Tree, said: ”It’s incredible for the Mustard Tree to have this much needed support, especially at this time of year. Christmas is a time of celebration, but for some it means nothing more than cold and lonely nights. This event is a great way to get people together to enjoy themselves, whist raising awareness and money to support those in need.”

Tickets prices start at £5 per person.
