Leading performers living with

Type 1 diabetes - including

cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason

and comedian Ed Gamble -

gathered together for an event to

celebrate the talents of those with

the condition. ArT1st Live took place

on Saturday at London's prestigious

Drapers' Hall in support of the Type

1 diabetes charity JDRF, which raises

funds for new treatments and cures

for the condition.

The ArT1st project was founded

in 2019 by Professor Partha Kar

OBE, National Specialty Advisor

for Diabetes at NHS England, in

collaboration with a committee of

people living with the condition and

diabetes healthcare professionals,

to unite people who have Type

1 diabetes. Its events are coorganised

by people living with

the condition. Following on from

a hugely successful virtual event

in 2020, Professor Kar and coorganisers

had set their sights on

an in-person event for autumn

2021. Their vision was rewarded,

with a night introduced and hosted

by Ed Gamble, and starring Sheku

Kanneh-Mason leading a bill of other

musicians and performers living with

Type 1 diabetes.

Gamble is best known as a regular

on BBC2's Mock the Week and as

co-creator and co-host of charttopping podcast

Off Menu with

James Acaster. Sheku Kanneh-Mason

became a household name in 2018

after performing at the wedding of

the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at

Windsor Castle.

Professor Kar said: "I have always

firmly believed in the many benefits

that building connections and

mutual support within the diabetes

community can offer."

Co-organiser Adrian Long said:

"The pandemic has of course had a

big impact on lives already affected

by type 1 diabetes. Gathering

together in person to celebrate the

talents of people with the condition

has been truly uplifting."

Hilary Nathan, Director of

Communications at JDRF, said: "Our

thanks and congratulations go to all

of those behind this special event. It

has provided valuable support for our

mission to find new treatments and

cures for type 1 diabetes."

ArT1st Live in aid of JDRF UK

has been made possible thanks to

corporate sponsors Abbott and

Novo Nordisk and supporting

sponsor Dexcom.
