War Child is a non-governmental organisation founded in the UK which provides assistance to children in areas experiencing conflict and the aftermath of conflict.It was founded in 1993 by film-makers David Wilson and Bill Leeson. On assignment in the former-Yugoslavia they were horrified by the violence and ethnic cleansing they witnessed. And especially its impact on children. In 2015, the number of children, young people and adults who received direct support from us was 126,000.

Nat Wallace (Deptford Wives)
The Deptford Wives are a 2-piece rockabilly lounge band playing country and bi-millenial blues. Edori Fertig, artist and singer, brings New York style to classic Lee Hazlewood, Peggy Lee and other covers while her original lyrics chart a wry and dry course through the perils of modern middle age. Nat Wallace on guitar and bass provides the moody, twangy accompaniment to Edori's soulful vocals while cutting up sharp in his hand made Nudi suit.

Minna Lacey (The Trills)
The Trills are a trio of creative vocalists that cross genres on a journey from pathos to joyous and back again. Their evocative and intimate performance created the perfect atmosphere for the War Child benefit night.
