The organisation Strike a Light is organising a benefit gig to help support Nepal earthquake victims.

 

The event will be a jam-packed night of live music, comedy, cabaret, comperes and a DJ set, all taking place at The Latest Music Bar in Brighton on Friday 19th June 7.30pm-2am. Save the date!

Bands, performers, organisers and venue are volunteering their time to perform at this event, to help fundraise to support all those affected in the earthquake in Nepal. Arts and heritage organisation Strike a Light will donate all funds from the evening to the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Music will be provided by three well known bands, who live and work locally, and who have agreed to do guest slots at the venue to support the fundraiser. Other acts will be a compere, comedy and cabaret, topped off with a DJ set to keep you dancing into the night!

More details of these will follow soon, so keep an eye on this page for regular updates!

“Donations will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee to help provide shelter for the homeless and food water and essential items to those who have lost everything.”

Advance tickets for this will be available direct from The Latest Music Bar on 14-17, Manchester Street, Brighton BN2 1TF (or will be later this week – so keep an eye out).

There will also be tickets available on the door on the night on a first come-first served basis. £10 (£8 conc).
