Come listen, sing, dance and shout for Palestinians in Syria!
From the heart of Lebanon’s refugee camps, Palestinian hiphop group Katibeh 5 bring you the sounds of the struggle, while unique world music collective Raast tell tales of love, refugeehood and resistance from the Middle East and beyond.

* Two unforgettable short films by filmmakers from Yarmouk camp
* Delicious home-made Syrian food
Entry is just £5, and all funds raised will go to support innocent Palestinian victims of the conflict in Syria.
Background: Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus has been under siege for seven months, and over 100 ordinary people have died of starvation or illness because of the lack of food and medical supplies – many of them children.
Shout for Yarmouk will send food and basic supplies to families who have been affected by the siege, via grassroots groups from Yarmouk known personally by Raast, such as Bassmeh Foundation (https://www.facebook.com/bassmeh), who have already begun to get food to hungry families inside the camp.
