Our MS Society Ambassadors Felix and Hugo from the Maccabees

We're thrilled to annouce The Maccabees will play an intimate London gig to raise funds to stop MS.

The exclusive gig will take place at Omeara in London Bridge on Friday 16 June. It’s been organised by our MS Society Ambasadors, Felix and Hugo White whose mum had MS and passed away when they were teenagers.

Last chance to see The Maccabees at an intimate venue

The Maccabees announced their split last August. So this is a last chance to see them perform in an intimate venue ahead of their sold out UK farewell tour at Manchester’s O2 Apollo and London’s Alexandra Palace this summer.

We're grateful for Felix and Hugo's support, they've been raising awareness and funds at The Maccabees shows since 2012. They became MS Society Ambassadors in October 2016.

A special night for The Maccabees and MS

The brothers said: “Putting on a show for the MS society is something we've wanted to do for a long time. As some will know, it's a cause very close to home as our mother had MS and we have been trying to help the charity where we can over quite a few years. Having got to know the charity too, we know how much amazing work is being done by the people there.

“This is the first chance we've had to actually put together a whole show solely in aid of the MS Society. It’s going to be a special night. We're so glad we have been able to make it happen.”

The London gig will also feature sets from Mystery Jets and Imperial Daze. The main event will be followed by a YALA! club night afterparty with DJ sets from Foals and surprise guests.

Exclusive The Maccabees photography exhibition

It will also feature an exclusive exhibition of photographs of The Maccabees over the years taken by the band’s drummer Sam Doyle. Prints will be available for purchase on the night.

Sign up for tickets for The Maccabees

Tickets for the live show will go on sale at 9am on Monday 5 June for £30. Tickets for the YALA! afterparty will go on sale on Tuesday 6 June. All the profits made from ticket and photograph print sales will be donated to help stop MS.

Tickets will only be available to subscribers of the YALA! Records mailing list.
