Dizzee Rascal will perform at Wembley Arena in March as part of We Day UK, a Free The Children event.

Free The Children, an international charity and educational partner, will stage the event on March 7 with Ellie Goulding, Jennifer Hudson and Birdy also set to perform live.

There will also be appearances by Nobel Prize nominated activist Malala Yousafzai and former US Vice President Al Gore on a day which will consist of educational speeches and performances in front of 12,000 students, teachers and supporters from over 400 schools.

Students hoping to attend We Day UK must complete at least one local and global charity act of their choice as part of Free the Children's We Act programme. Find out more at the official website.

The model has previously been rolled out in the US and Canada. Other people expected to appear at We Day UK in March include Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch, Glee's Jacob Artist Sam and the Womp, The Tenors and Hollywood actor Clive Owen.
