Ticket-buyers will be sent a link to watch an ultra high definition stream of her performance tomorrow (Saturday) evening at 8pm.

The Union Chapel, survived a demolition threat 25 years to become one of London’s most unique settings for live music.

But like all venues, it faces a potentially long wait to have gig-goers back through the door.

The building has been used as a crisis centre food distribution hub during the lockdown.

Tickets are £12 and available through the DICE app. Ms Marling, who is raising money for the Trussell Trust and Refuge, had to postpone her European tour as the outbreak took hold.
