MASTERS OF MUSIC CONCERT London, Hyde Park, Saturday 29 June 1996, THE PRINCE'S TRUST, MasterCard Masters of Music Concert.
The Prince's Trust is a charity in the United Kingdom founded in 1976 by Charles, Prince of Wales to help vulnerable young people get their lives on track. It supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. Hyde Park is a Grade I-listed major park in Central London. It is the largest of four Royal Parks that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace. The park is divided by the Serpentine and the Long Water.
The Trust held the first rock concert in Hyde Park for over 20 years and began its partnership with the Premier League, Football Foundation and Professional Footballers’ Association. The Trust realised that it could tap into young people’s passions – fashion, music, media and sport – to engage them in programmes which would change their lives. In 1996 Bob Dylan performed at the concert on Saturday 29 June; other artists were
Alanis Morissette, Eric Clapton, Imogen Heap, Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, and The Who
