Musicians from across Brighton come together this month for a charity concert in support of Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI). Held at Brighton Unitarian Church, the event hopes to raise awareness of the devastation suffered by individuals globally at the hands of acid attacks – a form of violence that takes a matter of seconds to carry out yet can cause immeasurable damage to victims with physical, mental and emotional scars that last a lifetime.
Opera singer Valeria Guidotti and classical pianist Zhanna Kemp will open to bring a unique touch to the evening, followed by two-piece Brighton based folk band Dot ‘N Bang to up the tempo. A set from the curator of the charity concert, singer-songwriter KEATS (with Julian Paredes and Sally Cranham) will follow, with local singer Sam Jordan (of the Dead Buoys) serving up a treat for the finale. One more special guest is still yet to be announced!
Welcome to all ages with a wide array of cakes, alcoholic and soft drinks on offer, the 140-capacity event is certain to sell out, with guests highly encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to support this vital cause.
Thank Folk for ASTI, the Acid Survivors Trust International charity concert, will be at the Brighton Unitarian Church, New Rd, BN1 1UF on Fri 25 Nov. Doors from 7.30pm, acts begin at 7.45pm. Tickets available at www.billetto.co.uk/asticoncert (£10 suggested donation).
