Line-up Announced – Après Ski Party

Ready to become a Dancing Queen after your Greatest Day?

To honour the 5th year of the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run we are delighted to announce our Après Ski Party, taking place in Trafalgar Square straight after you finish on Sunday 3rd February. You’ll want to celebrate your 10k triumph, so we’ve recruited some of the UK’s best live acts to perform completely live from the iconic steps in front of the National Gallery.

Alongside the impressive line up below, there will be plenty of other activity in the square, including Optimum Nutrition Cool Down Sessions led by Shaun Stafford, photo opportunities with our characters and much more.


Here’s the music line up:

11:00 – Rule the World

Here to warm up your vocals, we’ve got the next best thing to Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams. Rule the World have been recognised as the best Take That tribute band in the world, having graced the stage and even performed with the real thing. Expect a hit-laden set including Shine, Never Forget, Greatest Day, Relight My Fire and many more.

11.50 – Optimum Nutrition Cool Down Session

Help those muscles on the road to recovery with a mass cool down session, lead by Optimum Nutrition ambassador and fitness expert Shaun Stafford. Shaun will lead you all through some simple sets to help you on the road to recovery.
