L&M Productions was set up by West End performers Leigh Lothian (Currently in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Shaun McCourt (most recently seen in The Railway Children and the National's War Horse at the New London Theatre). This new venture was put together with a vision to raising money for those in unspeakable situations around the world. Each concert will donate proceedings towards a different cause with The UNICEF 'Syria Appeal' being the chosen charity for the first concert. Having seen such terrible footage of what is going on in this part of the world, both Leigh and Shaun wanted to do something to help these people in anyway possible and thus West End Live Lounge was born.
