(Running Time 2 hours and 55 mins approx. including interval)

Bromsgrove and Redditch Welcome Refugees are proud to present their second fundraising concert. Come along to hear an eclectic mix of Folk and Indie Music, featuring professional singer-songwriters,
in the intimate setting of the Palace Studio.
Profits are split between supporting refugees living in Worcestershire and giving aid to the camps in Europe and beyond.

Tickets £12.00 inclusive of booking fee £1 per ticket up to a maximum of £4.
Age: Suitable for all.

February Clothing Collection Date Cancelled




Also, please don’t leave donations at the Church or any of the Bridge Church building.

The policy of the Church is any bags just left will be sadly just thrown away. If they get wet or get contaminated the donations become a Health & Safety issue.

If bags begin to be left at the Bridge Church site and not handed over to anyone from our group this will jeopardise BRWR using The Bridge Church as a collection point.
