It’s one of the best ways to spend your money this month!

War Child BRITs Week Together with O2 returns for its fifth year and strongest series of gigs yet, giving fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. War Child UK raised an estimated £650,000 through BRITs Week shows last year, a significant increase year on year by the organisation. BRITs Week is produced by AEG Presents, BPI and War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, together with O2.

London will once again play host to a plethora of artists through a number of special gigs taking place between 11 and 22 February around the BRIT Awards to celebrate another phenomenal year for British music.

Seven-time British chart topper and Grammy award winner Jess Glynne, International chart toppers and BRIT award-winning The 1975, 2018’s biggest-selling UK debut artist, Anne-Marie, critically acclaimed BRIT nominee Jake Bugg with rising star Jade Bird, heartfelt rock band You Me At Six, Critics’ Choice nominee 2018 Mabel and quick-witted London rapper AJ Tracey will all be performing in intimate and special venues across the capital. Plus, revered singer-songwriter Frank Turner will be DJing and curating a night with Xtra Mile Recordings featuring Johnny Lloyd and their most exciting talent.

Fans will also be given a rare opportunity to catch Bristol rock band IDLES who had a top 5 UK album in 2018, renowned singer-songwriter Nick Mulvey, the potent combination of alternative-rock and electronic soundscapes from Enter Shikari, acclaimed British DJ and broadcaster DJ Semtex, Ivor Novello winning songwriter Tom Odell and festival headliners Bring Me The Horizon. Living legend and one of the primary members of the inimitable Squeeze, Chris Difford, will also be offering a songwriting masterclass at the BRIT School.

The prize draw is open now and closes at 23:59 pm, Monday 4 February.
