Please join us on Wednesday 8th December for a night of music and solidarity! With no sign of the housing crisis being tackled, we need to work together to highlight the interconnected nature of this crisis which affects so many of us.

People continue to suffer on the streets, in homeless hubs, in rat-infested halting sites, in direct provision. Students are in hotels while tourists are in student accommodation. Rents keep rising and evictions continue. Hotels are replacing our cultural spaces. A night of solidarity and music will raise our spirits as well as some much-needed funds to help NHHC and our Coalition partners to organise grassroots rallies to fight back against housing injustice.

Many thanks to Gary Ó Nualláin who approached us with the idea of a fundraiser to help fund NHHC demos and actions in 2022. Musicians have been at the forefront of the artists affected by both the housing crisis and Covid crisis. It’s a credit to them that they will offer their time and talent for this event.
