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 UK – the specialist charity to protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children living in war zones.
Caity Baser will kick off the series of events alongside Charlotte Plank and Bellah Mae on 9th October at Lafayette, London, followed by Nilüfer Yanya with Léa Sen, Trout and Jazzi Bobbi at Bush Hall, London on 11th October, and finally The Mysterines, with Lime Garden and Hannah Grae, who will be playing at Gorilla, Manchester on 12th October.
It’s all part of the charity’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.
The event series’ headline sponsor is YouTube Music, and your friendly neighbourhood Dork (Hi – Ed) is on board as media partner. As part of the event series, War Child and the YouTube Music Studios will also be hosting a music industry day in celebration of Day of the Girl on Tuesday 10th October. More details on that will be announced soon.
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.”
