Niall Hora Summertime Ball 2017

How do you fancy getting up close and personal with one of the biggest names in music, Mr Niall Horan? Oh yes!

We’ve teamed up with the chart-topping star to give 5 winners (plus a mate) the ultimate VIP experience ahead of his SOLD OUT gig at London’s Shepherd's Bush on Thursday August 31st,  and it’s all in aid of Capital’s charity - Global’s Make Some Noise – which supports small projects, helping disadvantaged youngsters across the UK.

You’ll could be one of the lucky few who get to hang out with Niall during his sound check,  grab a cheeky picture with the man himself to send your Insta feed into overdrive, and of course attend his SOLD OUT show that night. We’ll also sort out your travel, and an overnight stay (here) in London.
