Oxjam Brum Takes Over on Saturday!


If you’re all about local music acts and live events, then feel free to busy yourself by going to Oxjam Brum, this Saturday:

Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 9 years on we’re still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October.

Oxjam introduces and supports a range of local acts, as well as working in partnership with other Birmingham based organisations. Oxjam Brum is set to feature across various music and independent event hot spots; The Sunflower Lounge, 6/8 Kafe, Island Bar, Left for Dead Records, Frederick Canal Barge, Talk, The Oobleck and The Flapper – some of which you may already be familiar with if you’ve attended events such as Flatpack Film Festival and Fierce. You can access a detailed timetable and line up here.

Tickets for Oxjam Brum Take Over are available here – and just  £10 in advance, giving you all day access from 12pm on the 18th of October until 2am on 19th October. The first 150 people to pick up their wristbands on the day will gain access to the canal barge, curated by Croft Sessions.

They’re presenting a rather stunning (if I do say so myself) selection of raffle prizes, raising money for Oxfam. You can purchase your raffle tickets on Saturday from any of the participating locations, priced at £1 each. Who doesn’t love a good raffle? Here’s what you can win:

  • 2x Cadbury World Tickets
