THE Roundhouse is to host a big fund-raiser next week in aid of the humanitarian and emergency response work in Ukraine.

With the Russian invasion continuing and more than a million fleeing their homes, the famous venue in Chalk Farm Road is handing the stage over for a Night for Ukraine on Wednesday March 9 with money raised going to the Disasters Emergency Committee [DEC].

Pop duo Bloom Twins, who were born in Ukraine, will be curating the event, which will see live music, poetry, film and DJ sets.

They said in a statement today: ‘We are Ukrainian and it’s humbling to see the support our country is getting around the world. We are really looking forward to be a part of this project, and not just as one-off performance but as creative collaborators. This is an absolute honour to be representing our country and helping people caught up in this devastating conflict.”

The project has been partly organised by Fabien Riggall, the founder of Secret Cinema, who said: “We would like Night For Ukraine to engage the creative community to act, to come together for Ukraine and raise urgent funds for DEC.

“We are excited to be collaborating with the Bloom Twins and honoured to be partnering Sunflower Relief, an inspiring organisation to help Ukrainians at this time.”

The DEC brings together 15 of the UK’s leading aid charities. DEC charities and their local partners are working on the ground in Ukraine and at its borders, to help people fleeing the conflict.

Night for Ukraine is also encouraging other artists, organisers and venues to stage their own night across the nation to support DEC. Further information can be found at www.nightforukraine.org/weneedyourhelp
