Live gigs

War Child has a heritage of delivering unique live events with outstanding artists, producers and musicians. Find out more about our events and how you can get involved.

We have been hosting unique live shows with the help of the UK music industry since our inception in 1993. 

With staple events such as BRITs Week, Day Of The Girl, Safe & Sound, May In The Rain, The Right To Dance and a whole host of intimate warm-up shows, artists from across music and the UK have donated their time in support of War Child.  

Featuring artists such as Kano, Jessie Ware, The 1975, Laura Mvula, Tom Misch, Dave, Griff, Bicep, Sigrid, and Yungblud - these events have helped raise money and awareness that allows War Child to bring vital support to children suffering the brutal effects of war. 

Many of our live gigs are hosted annually with tickets available to purchase, often alongside the opportunity to win a pair of tickets via prize draws.
