War Child BRITs Week Together with O2 returns for its fifth year and strongest series of gigs yet, giving fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. War Child UK raised an estimated £650,000 through BRITs Week shows last year, a significant increase year on year by the organisation. BRITs Week is produced by AEG Presents, BPI and War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, together with O2.

The prize draw is open now and closes at 23:59 pm, Monday 4th February. To enter the prize draw and win tickets to see the artist of their choice music fans can make a £5 donation to War Child at www.britsweekwarchild.co.uk. To maximise the chance of winning, fans can enter as many times as they like. There will also be a limited number of tickets for sale from Friday 18th January.

A limited number of tickets for some of the shows will be available to buy exclusively to O2 customers via Priority Tickets from 9am Wednesday 16th January with the rest  on sale at 9.00am on Friday 18th January at www.britsweekwarchild.co.uk War Child BRITs Week will be partnering with Twickets across all shows as their ethical resale partner to ensure tickets for the shows can only be sold at face value.

Jim Benner, Global Music Lead, War Child UK added, “It’s amazing to see the music industry coming together once again to support children affected by conflict across the world. We’re looking forward to creating more wonderful moments and as ever we’re overwhelmed by the incredible support of some of the best artists making music right now. In 2019 we’re celebrating 10 years of partnering with O2 and with their support and the continued dedication of music fans together we’ve changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of the world’s most vulnerable children.”
