BRITs Week For War Child Announce Massive Bands For Tiny Shows

by | Jan 20, 2020 | Rock/Show

BRITs Week Together With O2 For War Child returns for its 6th year and another incredible series of gigs, giving fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. War Child UK raised an estimated £502,000 through BRITs Week shows last year.
