This special night is a rare London show from Rum Shack in association with Fox Fest to raise money for Refugee Community Kitchen (founded by The Common's very own Steve Bedlam) and ForJimmy.org.
More Like Trees are born of festival fields and raucous warehouse parties, radiating individuality from every facet. Theirs is a sound like no other: foot-stomping, heart-pounding, and infectious. This is an altermodern melting pot of styles reimagined as acoustic dance music. A meeting of drum n bass and folk with knowing nods towards flamenco and gypsy influences that they call 'Strum n Bass'.
Kwake Bass is regarded as one of the most established drummers in London. He's played in many contexts, ranging from musical director to one-man-band, for acts as varied as Jehst, Kate Tempest, Shabaka Hutchings and Karl R.Able. His new mixtape is the first instalment in a series of compilations of his solo work past and present.
The Fedz are a UK/US music collective from all races and backgrounds, working together for the common good. An anathema to the divisions in the world, sticking up a middle finger to the status quo.

Last year I took a car full of donations over (thank you to everyone who helped with that) but this year I'm raising money by cycling over to Calais!
I've not really cycled for over a year so it will certainly be a challenge!! Any donation that you give will spur me on to reach my destination... once there, I will be volunteering in the kitchen for a week as, unfortunately, that is the only time I can spare at the moment.
The Media has long gone forgotten the people in Calais...I haven't and I don't want you to either!
Thanks for your support xx
Hi! For those of you reading that don't know me, I'm Suzy. I have challenged myself to cycle from one end of the UK to the other, a journey of around 1050 miles.
"I cycle a bit, but I am really having to step up for this! I want to use the experience to push myself mentally and physically, and also to do some good in the world. Because of this, I would like to raise money for Help Refugees and Refugee Community Kitchen (RCK). Both of these wonderful organisations are based in Calais, and are some of the only sources of support, help and hot food that the refugees there are receiving. These people need our help, they are fleeing war and persecution and I believe it is our duty to help when our governments turn their backs. My goal is to raise at least £1 for each mile I will cycle. If I raise more I will be over the moon!" - Suzy
In just over a month's time I'll be tackling my first marathon in Paris, and I'm hoping to raise some money for Refugee Community Kitchen whilst I do it. I spent some volunteering with RCK earlier this year and was able to witness the excellent work they do cooking and distributing meals to refugees in Calais and Dunkirk. Though for some refugee presence in northern France and Europe remains a contentious political issue, the distribution of food and necessities to those who are hungry and in need is something which cannot reasonably be argued against. For those still in Calais and Dunkirk, conditions are as bad as they have ever been, only compounded by recent cold weather. So please give what you can and help support this extremely worthy cause. - Jack
Gypsy Westwood and her friend Anna are training for 12km marathon that will happen on the 7th of April in Santa Eulalia.
"This sort of challenge is a great way to raise money. The Refugee Community Kitchen was started by some friends and they have put their all into it and really made a difference.
They have been cooking hot meals for over 2000 refugees everyday in Calais and Dunkirk. I believe we are one world. We are all humans.
The world is so full of inequality.
If we can make small differences we are doing at least something for humanity." - Gypsy

Throughout the course of history global hubs like London have been defined, shaped and moulded by a myriad of ethnicities constantly adding ingredients to their cultural and musical melting pots. Here we explore The Next Wave - The Latest Sounds of the London Underground at our ‘Folk of the World’ concert in association with the Refugee Community Kitchencharity. The event will be held at Rich Mix London as part of the London Remixed Festival 2018 on Friday February 2nd and will showcase refugee artists as well as musicians from Syria, Iraq and Turkey. This event is not for profit and will act as a fundraiser for the Refugee Community Kitchen, to help celebrate the beauty, richness and diversity of the refugees music and culture as well as raise awareness of the refugees situation in the UK and what you can do to help.
The amazing people at The Parsnipship are donating 100% of profit from this event to Refugee Community Kitchens who have been cooking thousands of meals a day for refugees for just over two years.
RCK provide a hot nutritious meal for 50p per person. Think how many people we can feed if we pack this event out!
Come, eat incredible vegan food, drink incredible vegan ales, lagers and stouts, and feed people in need at the same time.
