The concert will feature stellar London-based bands, all in aid of Solace Women’s Aid. Established in 2011, Rock Against Violence has grown into Solace’s annual flagship music event, earning a staggering £25,000 in 2015. This year, we encourage you to join us for a night of fun, entertainment and charity.
