It’s an impressive line-up for a good cause: Founder of The Orb, Dr Alex Paterson is headlining a night of live music to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders/MSF).

The night is supported by Wild Card Brewery, who are donating their time and beer stock to raise money, while the acts are playing either for free or at a reduced cost. These costs are covered by event organiser Byrd Out.
