The universally recognisable Place du Casino will host its first major public event on July 16 since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, in the presence of HSH Prince Albert. The event in question will be a summer concert in support of the Monaco Red Cross, of which the Prince is also the president, and in celebration of a return to normal life.

After a pandemic-induced break from the organisation’s annual ball, the Monaco Red Cross is back, but this time with a brand new format. Guests of the highly anticipated event will be able to enjoy live music under the stars and at the heart of the Principality.

This evening will showcase the organisation’s ongoing daily activities among the most vulnerable in our society over the past 73 years. The evening is also set to pay a “vibrant tribute to sponsors of the Monaco Red Cross whose generosity helps prevent and ease the suffering of those in need.”

This year, the Monaco Red Cross will welcome British jazz-pop songwriter, pianist and singer Jamie Callum onto a specially-created stage for the occasion.

This evening will be open to all, but Monaco Red Cross donors will be welcomed onto the new terrace of the Café de Paris before going to Place du Casino. As is tradition, works of art created on the theme of the Red Cross have been offered by Laurence Jenkell and Nick Danziger, two internationally-renowned artists.

A cocktail and concert combination will cost 800 euros, while concert tickets alone range from 200 to 500 euros in price. The dress code is elegant. To discover more about the concert on the Monte-Carlo Société des Bans de Mer website, click here.
