March 3rd: Jools Holland and Prostate Cancer UK set to 'Raise the Roof' at Royal Albert Hall on 22nd June 2022

The leading men's health charity Prostate Cancer UK and Jools Holland are uniting to present Raise the Roof, with stars of music and comedy taking to the stage at The Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 22nd June for a special event to raise funds and help stop lives being rocked by prostate cancer, a form of cancer that affects 1 in 8 men in the UK.

The event is the brainchild of Prostate Cancer UK founder Professor Jonathan Waxman and Jools Holland, and will be hosted by Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) and AJ Odudu. The show's sparkling line-up includes musicians Celeste, Melanie C, Paloma Faith, Paul Weller, and Ruby Turner. Stand-up comedy will come from Gina Yashere, Omid Djalili, Shaparak Khorsandi, and Stephen K Amos. For more information and tickets, click here.

Speaking out for the first time about his own diagnosis, Jools explains the importance for men to understand more about prostate cancer, talk about it, and an early diagnose:

"I had no awareness of prostate cancer, no symptoms that I noticed whatsoever, until I was diagnosed following a routine blood test in 2014. Thankfully I was successfully treated, but if more people were aware of their risk and caught the disease early, then more lives would be saved. I would certainly stand on top of my piano and shout about it because I think it's really important. If Raise the Roof was able to save one man's life it would be the best thing ever that would come out of this."
