War Child, a newly formed charity aiming to raise funds to help child victims of war throughout the world, is staging a music and arts festival at the Royal Festival Hall, London. The event takes place over this weekend and next, Saturday/Sunday 6/7 March. It will comprise four performances of classical, contemporary and rock and pop music, as well as comedy. There will be films at the National Film Theatre, a photography exhibition and illustrated talks. The festival begins this evening with a candlelit vigil on the banks of the Thames by Gabriel's Wharf, starting at 10pm, in remembrance of all those children who have perished through war, especially those now suffering in Bosnia. Donations of blankets and clothes can be made tonight and at dawn a convoy of loaded lorries will set off for Sarajevo.
