Hard-Fi and Kaiser Chiefs sit down for Shelter


Preview by Jack Foley

KAISER Chiefs, Hard-Fi (pictured) and Richard Ashcroft are featured in a new photographic exhibition in support of homeless charity, Shelter.

The bands have been photographed sitting down by the charity to help raise awareness of the fact that over a million British children dwell in bad housing.

Other acts included in the all-star exhibition include Jarvis Cocker and Fightstar (Charlie, from Busted’s new group). It takes place at The Gallery @OXO on London’s South Bank from March 29 until April 2, 2006 and entry is free.

As well as shots of the stars and other celebrities, there are 5,000 pictures from members of the public, all of which feature the subjects sitting in Shelter’s distinct red chair.

Pledging his support for the campaign, former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft commented: “Over one million children in this country face a bleak future trapped in overcrowded, unfit or emergency housing which is wrecking their lives. A safe, secure home is just a distant dream for them.”

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to join the campaign by having their picture taken in the red chair when they enter.
