The Wexford Arts Centre are holding a charity show in support of the victims of the Australian wildfires, which have wiped out land nearly double the size of Ireland.
The Wexford Arts Centre have announced a benefit concert on 31 January to support victims of the raging wildfires in Australia, which have already wiped out nearly 11 million hectares of land – nearly twice the size of Ireland. All profits raised from the concert will go to the Australian Bushfire Appeal.
Performing at the charity show will be The Remedy Club, The Man Whom, Beki Hemingway, The Sweet Sorrows, Cursed Murphy Versus the Resistance, Frankenstein Bolts, and Ten Ounce Mouse.
While Australia has long been known as the land of fires, droughts and floods, it is experiencing the worst ever crisis in its recorded history. Since September 2019, 27 people have lost their lives, at least 1 billion animals have died, and over 2,000 homes have been incinerated.
Specific details for the gig will be announced on the night of, but Wexford Arts Centre have confirmed there will be numerous opportunities to donate, including a passed hat and a raffle.
Tickets for the Australian Bushfire Charity Show are available here for €10 each.
