FUND RAISER A Night for Ch­er­nobyl This fundrais­ing show marks the noted 31st an­niver­sary of the Ch­er­nobyl nu­clear dis­as­ter, to date the world’s largest. The pas­sage of time, how­ever, has not soft­ened the tragedy, as mil­lions of peo­ple – most of them chil­dren – con­tinue to suf­fer from the af­ter-ef­fects. In the af­ter­math of the in­ci­dent, Ir­ish woman Adi Roche founded Ch­er­nobyl Chil­dren In­ter­na­tional (CCI), which de­vel­ops pro­grams that im­prove suf­fer­ing and safe­guard ex­ist­ing and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions in the Ch­er­nobyl area. This show fea­tures Bell X1’s front­man Paul Noo­nan, Maria Doyle Kennedy (above), Gavin Glass, Ol­lie Cole, and Ian Doyle, and aims to raise funds for Ves­nova Or­phan­age and this sum­mer’s rest and re­cu­per­a­tion sched­ule for CCI. More names will be an­nounced closer to the gig.
