Bastille and Duran Duran to play intimate London gigs to raise money for child victims of war

War Child, the charity who raise funds to help children who affected by war, have organised a series of intimate gigs around London to raise funds. 
 
Bands such as Bastille, Duran Duran and You Me At Six will play low-key sets to raise both awareness and funds. 
 
Director of Music for War Child, Ben Knowles, told London Live what would be involved. 
 
He said: “We’ve been lucky in the calibre of artists who’ve always supported us. 
 
“I think it’s a cliché that music is this universal language that unifies people around the world, but that’s certainly true with young people and I think musicians have gravitated towards War Child because of that.”
