A special Fringe show will take place tonight at The Assembly Rooms to raise funds for Medical Aid For Palestinians, a British-based charity that delivers health and medical care to those worse affected by conflict in the region.

Confirmed to appear at the special show are Frankie Boyle, Shappi Khorsandi (pictured), Shooglenifty, The Poozies, The Bevvy Sisters, Dean Owens, Playtime and Black Diamond Express.

The show has been organised by Edinburgh-based collective Artists For Gaza, who say of the organisation they are supporting: “MAP was the first UK aid agency to respond to the [most recent] attacks in Gaza. To date they have delivered more medical supplies to the hospitals in Gaza than any other organisation”.

‘A Night For Gaza’ takes place tonight, 12 Aug, at 9.25pm. Tickets are £20 and are available here.
