See Caitlin Moran and Kevin Rowland lead a fundraising gig for refugee children

Tristan Parker

Fancy catching a stonking mix of musicians, DJs and cultural chats next week while raising cash for a very worthy and urgent cause at the same time? Of course you do, so make sure you grab a ticket to a last-minute fundraiser at central London bar and venue The Social on Tuesday.

The night will be generating money for Save The Children's Child Refugee Crisis Appeal, which is reason enough to go, but if you need more reasons then consider this belting melting-pot lined-up to provide the tunes and entertainment: Kevin Rowland of Dexys Midnight Runners playing a DJ set, columnist and author Caitlin Moran and writer John Niven (author of 'Kill Your Friends') co-hosting the event, dapper beat genius Andrew Weatherall playing what'll no doubt be an eclectic, dancefloor-filling DJ set, Joe Goddard of Hot Chip also on the decks, Turner Prize-winning artist and rave aficionado Jeremy Deller, plus talks from punk icon Viv Albertine of The Slits and beer writer Pete Brown.

Further on-point tunes come from Bristol's DJ Die, psychedelic rhythm 'n' blues duo In the Light of Aquarius and artist/music-lover Pete Fowler, who designed various kaleidoscopic artworks for Welsh rockers Super Furry Animals. All in all, a top night out to drum up some much-needed cash, and there'll be further opportunities to donate throughout the night. Dig deep, people.

The Social Fundraiser takes place at The Social on Tuesday September 22. Read more and buy tickets here.
