Bombay Bicycle Club support Freedom From Torture charity
Bombay Bicycle Club are amongst a number of bands set to play at a series of shows in aid of Freedom From Torture next month. Gigs will take place in London and Manchester as part of Freedom From Torture Presents, in aid of the charity which helps survivors of torture begin to rebuild their lives at facilities in Birmingham, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Newcastle.
The Bombay Bicycle Club show will take place at Camden’s KOKO on 22 Dec, with support from Trophy Wife and Dan Croll. The band’s frontman Jack Steadman told CMU: “We are really pleased to be part of this festival to support victims of torture and raise awareness of Freedom From Torture’s incredible work”.
While Marika Chaplais, Freedom From Torture’s events fundraiser, added: “We are thrilled Bombay Bicycle Club, Trophy Wife and Dan Croll are taking a stand against torture and raising vital funds for our work. We want people to come to KOKO to hear the brilliant music and learn about our work to help and support survivors of torture and to raise awareness of its devastating impact. Everyone who buys a ticket for this event will positively impact on the lives of torture survivors as we help them to rebuild their lives”.
