On the 18 May Peter Hook and The Light will be streaming their concert 'So This Is Permanent', a three hour plus concert film that runs through the Joy Division catalogue.

The concert was originally performed in 2015 to an audience of just 500, to mark the 35th anniversary of the death of Joy Divisions frontman Ian Curtis. The singer lived with epilepsy, anxiety and depression. Sadly, on 18 May 1980, he took his own life at the age of 23.

Peter Hook is asking for donations to be made to Epilepsy Society, in Ian's memory. The concert will make the 40th anniversary of Ian's death and will be streaming for 24 hours from 12pm.

More than half a million people in the UK have epilepsy and one third have seizures that cannot be controlled through available anti-epileptic drugs. There are 1,000 deaths from the condition every year, including many children and young adults. Epilepsy can have a devastating effect on people and their families, affecting all aspects of their lives.

Through our cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, we work for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK. Our research is driven by the desire to understand what has caused the epilepsy in each individual person, to be able to identify the best therapy from the outset, and to make this expertise widely available.
