One room. One sledgehammer. 10,000 walnuts.

Welcome to The Nutcracker Suite: a special room in central London where our cracking team of intrepid celebrities and volunteers are helping to crack prostate cancer.

Every donation of £5 or more will get a walnut smashed in The Nutcracker Suite. Our hammer-wielding heroes will crack your nut live, on-screen; and your name will appear in lights.

Make them work, make them sweat; because they won't rest until they've cracked every nut you donate and built a fund to help crack prostate cancer for good.

Why nuts?

A man's prostate is only the size of a walnut but prostate cancer kills 10,000 men a year in the UK. We need a sledgehammer to crack it.

We'd like to thank...

Healthy Planet for setting us up with the space in central London for free. Keyline Builders Merchants for providing the sledgehammers and safety gear. xFilm for their video and streaming know how and, of course, Marks and Spencer for donating thousands of very smashable walnuts.
