|See our Bon Jovi winners Ivyrise in concert this weekend!
Indie rockers Ivyrise will perform in central London this weekend - their first concert since winning thelondonpaper’s amazing competition to support rock legends Bon Jovi.
It won't be on the same scale as last weekend's mega-gig in front of 60,000 fans at Twickenham Stadium, but Sunday’s event promises to be equally memorable as the boys play at the Ultimate Friendship Festival at Westminster Boating Base and Pimlico Gardens, London.
The event - which is ticket only entry - is being run by best-selling children’s author Cathy Cassidy and the NSPCC’s free children’s helpline ChildLine, to promote the message of: ‘Say no to bullying and yes to friendship.'
More than five hundred ticket holders are expected to for a day of entertainment and to sign Cathy’s Friendship Charter, which asks young people to pledge to take six simple steps towards making a difference to someone else’s life.
In addition to Ivyrise (pictured), there will be jewellery-making workshops, multi-media friendship quizzes, barbecues, writing workshops, chocolate tasting and arts and crafts.
