Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford's Winter Wassail is an annual gala hosted by Carey and Marcus benefitting Children in Conflict. This event, previously held in London, has raised over 4 million dollars since 2014 to support programs around the world protecting, educating and providing hope for children in conflict zones. This year's event, hosted by Justin Long, featured performances by Marcus Mumford, Sam Smith, Brandi Carlile, Jack Garratt, Blake Mills and Alyssa Umphress, as well as readings by Mike Myers, Carmen Ejogo, Michaela DePrince, Zoe Kazan and Sophia Anne Caruso. It was widely hailed as a beautiful and successful evening in honor of a great cause.
MUDBOUND SCREENING HOSTED BY CAREY MULLIGAN
Children in Conflict were given this exclusive preview of the film by Netflix to show privately ahead of it's release. Held at Manhattan's Metrograph theatre our screening of Mudbound was hosted by Carey Mulligan, Children in Conflict's Global Ambassador. Mudbound captures the impact of conflict on those directly caught up in fighting, but also the way it affects the families and loved ones left behind.
Citi Sound Vault Presents Mumford & Sons
On September 18, 2017, Children in Conflict partnered with Global Citizen and Citibank to host Mumford & Sons live in concert, as part of the annual Global Citizen Festival. Both Citibank and Global Citizen generously covered the costs of putting on the show, helping make every single cent raised go to Children in Conflict and Global Citizen. Mumford & Sons are long-term supporters of War Child UK, and we are excited to partner with them as we begin our journey as Children in Conflict.
