For the fourth Common and Kind concert, choirs from schools in Brent, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Haringey, working with the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants and Rainbows Across Borders (LGBT asylum seekers), will sing alongside the London Humanist Choir and London International Gospel Choir, forging inclusivity and strengthening community spirit.

Joining them are West End star Cassidy Janson, UK jazz legends Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock, Bengali pop icon Saida Tani, violin virtuoso Thomas Gould, New York soul singer J Hoard, ENO Harewood artist Nadine Benjamin with the Beethoven Orchestra for Humanity and comedian Nish Kumar. The host is award-winning journalist and radio presenter Robin Lustig.

Common and Kind is not for profit; it is crowdfunded and run by volunteers.

Common and Kind 2019 takes place on 27 June at Union Chapel London.
