Radio X will host an intimate event with performances by Mumford And Sons and Tom Chaplin in aid of War Child on Thursday 22 December at London’s Omeara.
Radio X presents Mumford & Sons’ Christmas Party will feature an hour-long set from the band in their first UK performance since their huge British Summer Time gig at Hyde Park in July, plus a set from frontman of Keane Tom Chaplin. All proceeds from the event will go to War Child, a charity that supports children affected by conflict.
Watch Marcus announce the show below.
Mumford And Sons released their multi-platinum debut studio album Sigh No More in 2009, before going on to top both the UK and US album charts with Babel (2012) and Wilder Mind (2015). Earlier this year they released the critically acclaimed Johannesburg, a mini-album recorded in South Africa. With their anthemic choruses and emotive lyrics, the band are known for their epic live performances which have included headline sets at Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds.
Tom Chaplin enjoyed huge success with Keane, scoring 5 number one albums between 2004 and 2013. In October, he released his debut solo album The Wave, a self-penned collection of enormous, emotional pop tunes.
Radio X Presents Mumford & Sons’ Christmas Party in aid of War Child will take place at Omeara – the new gig venue set-up by Mumford And Sons’ Ben Lovett – and will offer fans a rare opportunity to see the artists perform up close in an intimate setting.
