Dizzee Rascal and Jennifer Hudson have just been added to the line-up for the upcoming We Day UK Event.

Free the Children has teamed up with Virgin Atlantic and Barclays to launch the charity project at Wembley Arena on Friday, 7 March.


Ellie Goulding will headline the environmental event, while there will also be appearances from Malala Yousafzai, former US Vice President Al Gore, and Clive Owen.

MTV’s Laura Whitmore will host We Day, alongside Bluey Robinson and Lilah Parsons. The day will consist of educational speeches and performances in front of 12,000 students, teachers and supporters from over 400 schools.

Other acts to make an appearance will be Harry Potter’s Evanna Lynch, Glee star Jacob Artist and singer Birdy.

We Day has already staged events in the US and Canada. Students can apply for tickets by completing at least one local and global charity act of their choice as part of Free the Children’s We Act programme.
