Heading the line-up will be James Pearson, resident pianist and artistic director at Ronnie Scott’s famous Soho jazz club.

Joining James will be other members of his trio, plus singer Polly Gibbons.

This event will take place in the gardens of the Old Fire Engine House restaurant, in St Mary’s Street, from 4-6 pm on Sunday, June 7.

A spokesman for Amnesty said: “The concert will go ahead rain or shine and all ticket holders are asked to bring a blanket or folding chair.

“Gates will open at 3.30pm and there will be a licensed bar and a raffle with some fantastic prizes. All profits from the event will go to Amnesty International.”
