A benefit concert for child refugees is to take place at Union Chapel in London on 2 Dec. Curated by Ed Harcourt in aid of The Flying Seagull Project charity, performers will include Charlotte Church, Carl BarĂ¢t, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and comedian Simon Munnery.

“Over the past couple of months two incredible things have happened”, says Flying Seagull Project founder Ash Perrin. “We have welcomed hundreds of kids into our circus tent and watched them transform into children again through play and laughter. The other is Ed Harcourt and his friends rallying behind us to make sure these children keep playing. As musicians they have the power to lift hearts and inspire minds. To have them uniting with us for happiness through play is encouraging us to never stop spreading love, light and laughter to children everywhere”.

“Tickets are on sale for the Union Chapel extravaganza”, adds Harcourt. “If you can make it, know it’s for a really good cause. The Flying Seagull Project are out in the refugee camps at the moment, making a real difference for these kids”.

Tickets are indeed on sale here.
