Already talent like Jonny Olley, songstresses like Charity Stow and Ukrainian folk singer Iryna from band Muha have taken to the stage. The music has been magical and inspiring.

Think of a cosy, warm and welcoming space with an attentive and respectful audience, and you are right on track. An affordable bar with soft and alcoholic drinks, hot beverages and some light snacks are available.

As a musician and music enthusiast, I believe music and in particular live music can bring people together in a meaningful way that enriches us all and that is so very close to the heart of the work of both organisations Refugee Roots and Tiger Community Enterprise CIC

Adam Baker, Charity Director.

Proceeds will be equally split between the two organisations and will go towards their much-needed community support.

Background Notes Refugee Roots started by Graham Burton at St Stephen’s with St Paul’s Church in Hyson Green, the Rainbow Project was set-up to address racial inequality and injustice, bringing a vision of a truly diverse and welcoming church. This Christian project, pioneered with a strong commitment to social inclusion, began to focus more on support for refugees and asylum seekers. With the increasing focus on providing refugee support the charity re-launched under the new name Refugee Roots in November 2019. To find out more about Refugee Roots visit
