Hamilton to hold fundraising performance for Prince Harry’s charity

First Published 13 July 2018, Last Updated 23 July 2018

Hamilton will hold a fundraising performance for Sentebale, the charity founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, which raises vital funds towards their work with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

Every ticket sold to the evening performance of Hamilton on Wednesday 29th August will raise money for Sentebale. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.

Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh, producers of Hamilton, said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sentebale, the charity founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso, for this special performance of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

“Whilst there has been significant advancement in the treatment and care of HIV, the virus sadly still affects whole communities in many parts of the world, and particularly in southern Africa. We are delighted to help raise funds for this extraordinary cause.”

UNAIDS reports that globally, 1,700 new HIV infections occur every day among young people, and stigma remains a major factor preventing youth accessing lifesaving health services. Despite advancements in treatment and care, young people are lagging behind on multiple fronts — knowledge of HIV, HIV testing, treatment and prevention. It is in this context that Sentebale has developed a youth centred approach to impact the lives of children and young people across southern Africa.

The Olivier, Tony and Grammy Award-winning production of Hamilton originally opened at the Pubic Theatre in New York in 2015. Later that year, the Broadway production opened and, in December 2017, the London production opened at the newly re-built and restored Victoria Palace Theatre. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.
