STREETS OF LONDON PRESENTS: BASTILLE + BILLY BRAGG + JAMIE LEE (MONEY), UNION CHAPEL, MAY 2017
We're thrilled to announce details of an intimate one-off fundraising concert at London’s Union Chapel on Monday 22nd May, featuring live music from Bastille.
The band will perform a unique stripped-back set with a string quartet at the 900-capacity venue. Support will come from Billy Bragg, a musician who has long associated himself with social justice, also Jamie Lee (Money).
As an Ambassador of the charity, Dan Smith of Bastille shared: “We are beyond excited to be playing this special one-off show at The Union Chapel in support of Streets of London. I’m honoured to be an ambassador for this charity and try to help champion the life-changing work they’re doing amongst the homeless and vulnerable in London. We’re so excited to be playing a show alongside the incredible Billy Bragg who we admire so much, at a venue that we’ve always wanted to play.”
Speaking about the event, Streets of London Director Ian Steuart Fothringham shared: "The number of people sleeping rough in London has nearly trebled in the last ten years. These are some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our society, and it’s vital that they can access the support they need to get off the streets. Streets of London provides funding to projects that give homeless people the support they need to turn their lives around. We’d like to say a huge thank you to the artists for supporting our work and helping to bring attention to this important cause."
Tickets for this event have now sold out. Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket or who entered the ballot and made a donation to Streets of London.
