Iron Maiden will be presented with a Silver Clef award by the Nordoff Robbins charity for their “outstanding contribution to UK music.”

The accolade represents the British heavy metal icons’ contribution to the UK music scene and for being “one of the most globally successful and influential rock bands of all time.”

Say Maiden of the award: “Nordoff Robbins is an exceptional charity, and their dedication to changing lives through music therapy is something we all very much support.

“We’re extremely proud to be part of the 40th anniversary event celebrating this wonderful achievement.”

Speaking of the work the charity does, and congratulating Iron Maiden on their win, Nordoff Robbins CEO July Whelan says: “It is because of events like the O2 Silver Clef Awards that Nordoff Robbins is able to continue to deliver essential music therapy services to vulnerable and isolated people across the UK.

“Since 1976, the event has brought together artists from all areas of the music industry, raising an incredible £8.5 million in the process.”

The award will be presented at the Grosvenor Park Hotel, London in July.
