ICN: O2 concert to mark 100 Days of Peaceful Events

Below is an excerpt of an article from ICN about a concert being held this weekend at the O2 to mark an end to 100 Days of Peaceful Events, which was set up following the death of two boys as a result of violent crime in 2008.

“One thousand young people are being rewarded with tickets to a concert for peace at the 02 Indigo on the 28 October, to celebrate the end of 100 Days of Peaceful Events. Margaret Mizen and Grace Idowu, two mothers who lost their sons to violent crime in 2008, have been working together to work on 100 Days of Peaceful Events mirroring the 100 day truce instated in Greece during the Olympic period.  One thousand young people who took part in the Events will receive free tickets for the ‘Release the Peace’ concert the 02 Indigo this coming Sunday, the 100th day.

Headlining on the night will be X Factor winner Shayne Ward with exciting support acts including Sam Gray, Abi Phillips, the string quartet Raven and Dru Blu. This eclectic mix of musical acts will provide entertainment for all and the night will be punctuated with short films to raise awareness of the consequences of violent crime and the importance of working together to build a more peaceful society.”
