War Child has announced a special run of shows to mark the charity’s Day of The Girl 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.

As part of the series, The Mysterines will play Gorilla on Thu 12 Oct, with support coming from Lime Garden and Hannah Grae.

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. Through provisions such as aid, education, and psychosocial support, War Child empowers young women who refuse to be defined by the horrors of war.”

General sale tickets are available this Fri 8 Sep, priced at £25. Grab yours using the button below.
