BBC Children In Need has announced that Welsh stars Sir Tom Jones and Rob Brydon are joining forces for One Big Night – a night of music and entertainment in aid of disadvantaged children across the UK.
“It really is a great honour to be working with BBC Children in Need this year. I hope this night of entertainment will not only be a fantastic experience for those who come along, but will also go on to help disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK who really do need our help. I look forward to seeing you there; it is set to be an amazing night!” – Sir Tom Jones
Presiding over the concert, Brydon will take an affectionate and humorous look at Sir Tom’s remarkable career thus far. Sir Tom will perform with his band and with some very special guests, while the show will also feature live and pre-recorded comedy pieces depicting some of the many lively moments of Sir Tom’s illustrious musical career.
The concert will take place at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Thursday 8 October and will transmit prime time on BBC One during the week of the annual BBC Children in Need Appeal.
“I am delighted to be hosting what is set to be a fantastic evening of music and comedy, two of my favourite things! It’s not unusual for Sir Tom to go above and beyond when it comes to putting on a show, so I have no doubt this will be one to remember, and all for a fantastic cause.” – Rob Brydon
