This weekend two venues in Bangor and Belfast respectively will be hosting shows to raise funds for the growing refugee crisis across Europe.
Friday 11th September will see the Northern Ireland Calais Refugee Initiative raising money to transport public donations to Calais with a show in the Goat’s Toe, Bangor. The line-up features Mike Donaghy, Glenn Burton, Stephen Macartney, Michael-James, Sticky Shadows and High Sundays. There is a suggested donation of £5.
