Noel Gallagher to hold intimate ‘An Evening With…’ charity Q&A evening

The event will take place in London on November 3

Noel Gallagher has announced plans for an intimate live Q&A session to raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise charity.

The event, titled ‘An Evening With Noel Gallagher’ and arranged in partnership with Global radio station Xfm, will take place at the Hammersmith Club in London on November 3.

Talking alongside Manic Street Preachers’ bassist Nicky Wire, Creation Records founder Alan McGee and Shortlist Deputy Editor Hamish Macbain, the evening will comprise a 90-minute conversation delving into “Noel’s life in music”.

Speaking about the evening, Gallagher stated “Having rarely stopped blowing my own trumpet since April ’94, it’ll come as no surprise I jumped at the chance to let the people catch me at it again, so to speak, while at the same time raising a few bob for the kids. It’ll be a pleasure.”

The capacity for the event is limited to 120 people and tickets will be available from 8am on Wednesday, October 1. Priced between £40 and £100, tickets can be purchased from xfm.co.uk.

Global’s Make Some Noise is a new national charity that brings together people from the music world to help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher recently posted photos from the studio, showing him working on the follow up to 2011’s ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’. According to long-term associate Mark Coyle, the record is “in the spirit of ‘Definitely Maybe’, because it’s so obviously exciting.”
