Proceeds from the shows will go towards supporting the work of War Child, who aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery.

Mastercard cardholders will have exclusive pre-sale access to the gigs, which begins at 10am on Thursday (December 16).

A limited number of tickets will then go on general sale from 10am on Friday (December 17). A prize draw to win tickets to any of the gigs will also commence on Friday, with last entries accepted on January 23.

Holly Humberstone was named as the winner of the BRITs Rising Star Award last week.

“I remember watching the BRITs with my parents each year and being totally awe struck by the artists coming together in what felt like another universe,” the artist said. “Now to be named the BRITs Rising Star and nominated alongside two other incredible women [Bree Runway and Lola Young], with the songs that started within those four walls at home is so mad. It just doesn’t feel real.

“This year has been a wild ride and a year of firsts, and I am so grateful and thankful for everyone who has helped make this happen!”
