Red Nose Day is back on May 21, 2020

When is Red Nose Day 2020? Thursday, May 21.


We’re not the only ones returning in 2020. Our amazing partners NBCUniversal, Walgreens, Mars Wrigley Confectionery, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have all returned for another year to help end child poverty – both here in the U.S. and around the world.

While many details for 2020 are still under wraps, there are already some amazing things in store from our partners as Red Nose Day celebrates its sixth year:

NBCUniversal will continue to light up the night on Thursday, May 21 with a three-hour block of primetime programming celebrating Red Nose Day.

Kicking off the night at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Ben Stiller is bringing the phenomenon of escape rooms to television in spectacularly over-the-top style with “Celebrity Escape Room.” The one-hour show will feature a cast of A-listers like Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Adam Scott to name a few. Following “Celebrity Escape Room,” the two-hour “Red Nose Day Special” will feature the biggest names across entertainment with a packed lineup of music, comedy and short documentary films that will educate and engage viewers.

So, expect a rollercoaster of laughs, tears, and all your favorite celebrities raising awareness and funds to end child poverty.

Once again, Walgreens will return as a national partner and exclusive retailer of the iconic Red Nose. Walgreens has sold over 40 million Red Noses since 2015, and customers can grab a Red Nose at more than 9,000 stores nationwide starting April. We can’t wait to get our #NosesOn.

For the sixth year, M&M’s, a Mars Wrigley Confectionery brand, will continue as a Red Nose Day national partner, contributing $1 million in funding and supporting the effort through a range of events, integrations, and fundraising.

And last but not least: longtime Red Nose Day supporter The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will continue as a key funding and programming partner.

We continue to be amazed by the incredible support of our partners and by the support of the American public. Since 2015, we've raised $200M to help nearly 25 million children in the U.S. and around the world
