The event was held by the Vietnam-UK Network (VUKN) to raise funds to support three British charities operating in Vietnam, which are The Christina Noble Children's Foundation, Facing the World and Saigon Children's Charity.

The concert featured some famous Vietnamese and international artists, including pianists Tra Nguyen, Tomazz Lis and Shu-Wei Tseng, and violinists Stephane Tran Ngoc, Maryna Raievska, Abigail Dance and Phuong Hoang Linh Nguyen, who performed famous works by British, Vietnamese and world composers.

VNA cited the saying of VUKN Chairman and former British Ambassador to Vietnam Mark Kent that having famous Vietnamese artists perform at the Royal College of Music in London is a great way to honour the Vietnam-UK relationship, adding that it also raises awareness of the importance of cultural exchange between the two countries./.
