Opera singer Paul Potts who made his name on TV show Britain's Got Talent is to headline the Parkinson's UK charity Christmas concert.
Christmas readings will be given by TV personality Michael Aspel and Parkinson's UK President, Jane Asher, while other acts include Sing for Joy and the award-winning Wessex Male Choir.
BBC newsreader Jane Hill will host the concert at Central Hall, Westminster, London at 7pm on Friday December 9.
Paul said: "By buying a ticket for the concert you will enable Parkinson's UK to continue with their vital work to help improve the lives of the 120,000 people in the UK with Parkinson's."
The charity is dependent on donations and all funds raised from the concert will help the charity find a cure, and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.
Paul Jackson-Clark, director of fundraising at Parkinson's UK, said: "The concert is a wonderful seasonal celebration with singing, music, poetry and celebrity guests.
"Ticket sales from the concert will raise essential funds that will help us fund our vital work, and make a real difference to the lives of people with Parkinson's."
Tickets are priced at £25 or £19 for Parkinson's UK members. Discounts for groups and children are available.
A post-concert mulled wine and mince pie reception is included in the ticket.
