Foxes come to Southampton for charity record attempt
As part of the unique Guinness World Record Attempt, British Singer- Songwriter, Foxes will be coming to the University of Southampton Students Union on the 27 May. Along with the New CITROËN C1, Foxes, are taking on a Guinness World Records title attempt for the ‘most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities’. All proceeds raised from the ticket sales will be donated to the charity Trekstock, who support young adults affected by cancer.
The Guinness World Record Attempt title attempt will see Foxes drive from C1TY TO C1TY in a CITROËN C1, performing a gruelling schedule of seven live concerts, at seven venues, in 12 hours.
The C1TY TO C1TY record attempt will take place across the South East of England .
The day’s events will be in aid of youth cancer charity Trekstock, whose patrons include Mark Ronson and Liam Payne from One Direction. Tickets for each of the intimate live gigs are on sale now and can be purchased at http://trekstock.com/foxes-c1ty-to-c1ty.
Starting here at the University of Southampton Students’ Union, the tour will involve a 250 mile journey in a New CITROËN C1. The route takes in Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford and High Wycombe, ending with a grand finale in London at the House of Vans, Waterloo. Southampton born Foxes will perform a 15 minute set at each venue, accompanied by support acts. Full details about all the venues and how to buy tickets can be found on Trekstock’s website.
In addition to a fundraising target of £20,000 via ticket sales, CITROËN will also gift the record attempt vehicle – a stylish C1 Airscape Flair VTi 68 S&S – to Trekstock to further boost the charity’s fundraising.
Louisa Rose Allen, who performs under the stage name Foxes said; “I’ve always thought it would be amazing to be a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder, so this opportunity was just too good to miss. The pressure is on though as I’m fitting in all the preparations for the record attempt around studio sessions. It’s really exciting, but of course the main aim is to raise money for Trekstock, which is a fantastic charity.”
CITROËN and Trekstock’s collaboration with Foxes comes at an exciting time for the Grammy Award winning artist, who has recently started a course of intensive driving lessons, with help from CITROËN, to get her up to speed ahead of the record attempt. Her second album will be released later in the year.
