A musical mix of Irish and British acts will be taking to the stage in November for the annual Cheerios Childline concert.

It's considered the concert highlight of winter in Ireland and this year's Cheerios Childline concert is set to live up to its reputation.

Irish acts The Coronas and Shane Filan will be taking to the stage of The 02 on November 20th for the annual Childline concert, joined by The Wanted, Union J and Little Mix.

And in what will be the closest thing pop fans will get to a Westlife reunion, singer turned presenter Nicky Byrne will be hosting the extravaganza.

Ireland's number one children's charity intends on raising €400,000 through this year's gig, having raised an impressive €4.6m over the years.

All of those involved, including the artists and the venue, are providing their services free of charge in order to raise much-needed funds for the organisation, which celebrates its 25th birthday this year.

Of the 800.000 calls received in 2013, nearly half will go unanswered due to a lack of resources.

Tickets for this year's concert go on sale this Friday at 9am and are available from €39.50 per ticket. There is a limit of eight tickets per transaction.
