Griff to play War Child show

By | Published on Wednesday 8 September 2021


Griff has announced that she will play a show at Lafeyette in London next month in support of War Child’s Day Of The Girl initiative, which aims to empower girls and young women, and amplify their voices.

“It is an honour to be curating and headlining this very special gig for War Child, and to be doing my bit for Day Of The Girl”, says Griff. “It is such an important initiative and one which I really stand behind not only as a female performer, but as a woman in a world where unequal opportunity and challenge for female-identifying individuals is still rife – particularly in the communities which War Child operate in. I am proud to be lending my voice to help amplify those of girls and young women everywhere”.

Charlotte Nimmo, War Child’s Head of Fundraising Engagement, says: “We are THRILLED to be launching Day Of The Girl, and to be doing so with the weight of all these incredible people involved makes it all the more special and exciting. This initiative will really give us the opportunity to address and challenge some of the key issues impacting girls and young women today and help us raise the crucial funding we need to support children and girls affected by conflict. ****Girls are often disproportionately affected during the conflict cycle, and we need to be there to provide the services they need so that they can thrive and feel empowered – because these girls and young women could be leaders of the future”.

The show will take place on 8 Oct. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 9am at, priced at £20.
