It is to be held at St Mark’s Church in Broomhill, Sheffield, on Saturday, April 9.

Simon Ennals, a singer and guitarist on the Sheffield folk scene, said: “Everyone has been moved by the pictures of the refugee crisis in Europe and Syria. As musicians we thought a fundraising concert would be a way that we could make a difference.”

Tickets cost £10 and can be bought from the Blue Moon Café in Sheffield city centre or from www.wegottickets.com/event/350394
