Caity Baser, Nilüfer Yanya and The Mysterines are all set to perform intimate live shows in venues across London and Manchester throughout the week commencing 9th October, in support of the Day of the Girl event series from War Child.
British singer-songwriter Caity Baser will kick off the series of events on 9th October at Lafayette, London, followed by alternative artist Nilüfer Yanya at Bush Hall, London on 11th October, and finally alternative rock band The Mysterines, who will be playing at Gorilla, Manchester on 12th October.
These performances are all part of the War Child’s Day of The Girl event series, coinciding with the UN’s International Day of the Girl Child. Through a celebration of young, woman-identifying talent, the series aims to create a moment that highlights the specific challenges girls and young women face around the world, and to raise vital funding to help War Child protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children affected by conflict.

Charlotte Nimmo, Head of Fundraising Engagement at War Child said:
"We are thrilled to launch Day of The Girl 2023. We are grateful for the support of all the musicians who will help us in amplifying the importance of the issues spotlighted by this event series. This collaborative effort will also raise vital funds to support War Child’s work. Girls and young women living in conflict zones endure impossible circumstances.
