Graham Coxon, KT Tunstall, Robyn Hitchcock for climate-focused Shift festival

Acts come together in aid of Cape Farewell organisation

Graham Coxon and KT Tunstall are among the acts set to play Shift festival this January.

Taking place at London‘s South Bank from January 26-31, Shift is a climate-focused festival.

Coxon and Tunstall, along with Kathryn Williams, will join Robyn Hitchcock in what’s billed as a Maritime Evening at Queen Elizabeth Hall on January 30.

The night is set to celebrate the Cape Farewell organisation, which brings together artists, scientists and communicators to discuss the production of art founded in scientific research.

Hitchcock and Tunstall both took part in an expedition to the Arctic with the organisation in 2008, along with Jarvis Cocker.

Other acts playing Shift include Liam Frost, who teams up with Max Eastley for a one-off performance at The Front Room in Queen Elizabeth Hall on January 29.

A number of talks and discussions ranging from climate to sustainable fashion are also scheduled during the festival, with the likes of comic Marcus Brigstocke confirmed to appear.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now. See Southbankcentre.co.uk for more information.
