Damon Gough will perform at Mono in Chorlton this month, in a show inspired by the War Child Passport:Back To The Bars series of gigs.

Badly Drawn Boy, aka Damon Gough, has announced a special show aimed at raising funds for War Child, to take place in Chorlton on 21 February.

Mono will be the venue for show, with the venue's owner Guy Hodgkiss inviting the 2000 Mercury Prize winner to play the fundraiser after being inspired by the Passport:Back To The Bars gigs. Those shows see bands like Elbow, The Vaccines and Bastille playing intimate shows to raise money for the War Child charity.

Gough said he was "happy to be involved in a great night for a worthwhile cause."

War Child provides support to kids whose lives have been affected by conflict and all proceeds from the show will go to the charity.

Entry to Mono costs £3, with the first 50 people to donate £5 at the bar getting a wristband that allows access to the show. Tickets are also available in advance from the venue.
