Kate Bush’s London pop-up shop will raise money for homeless people

The Wuthering Heights singer will give all profits from the sale of her remastered music catalogue to homelessness charity Crisis

Pop enigma Kate Bush is launching a pop-up shop in London to sell remastered versions of her 40-year back catalogue to raise funds for homeless people.

The store will sell the Wuthering Heights singer’s CDs, vinyl and her lyric book How To Be Invisible plus specially-designed items at Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross from December 5-9.

There will also be a daily raffle at the store for exclusive prizes with the winners announced on social media.

All profits from the swag sold will go to national homelessness charity Crisis.

“I can’t imagine how it must feel to be homeless,” said Bush ahead of next week’s grand opening. “Our attention is drawn to this tragic issue at Christmas when most of us can share the celebrations with those we love but, of course, homelessness is there all year round – all the time. It must be so frightening.

“Without charities like Crisis, who would people turn to? Who would help? Where would the hope of a future come from? I hope this pop up shop will raise some money for Crisis and raise more awareness of this life-saving charity.”

Crisis chief executive Jon Sparkes added: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Kate Bush has chosen to support us this Christmas by donating all of the profits from her pop up shop.

“The money raised by Kate and her fans will help us provide food, warmth, and vital services to thousands of homeless people this Christmas – as well as the year round support they need to leave homelessness behind for good – and for that we’re incredibly grateful.”
