October is Oxjam month!
There will be hundreds of music events taking place up and down the UK for Oxfam’s Oxjam festival.
The volunteer-led Oxjam Festival has been rocking people’s socks off since 2006. Clapham is one of the largest Oxjam areas, which means there’ll be loads of exciting gigs happening. I have it on good authority that there will be a Gig Makers event at The Bedford in Balham and a Takeover event in Balham’s Oxfam Books. All proceeds from the events go straight into helping impoverished communities through Oxfam’s projects across the globe.
The two types of events:
Gig Makers: if you fancy putting on your own gig, how about signing up and becoming a Gig Maker? You will receive a step-by-step guide to putting on your event. Details here: https://www.oxfam.org.uk/oxjam/gigmakers
Takeover events: Balham’s very own Oxfam Books will stay open late to host bands for an evening of wonderful music.
Event details are yet to be finalised – I’ll post more as soon as I know what’s happening when.
In the meantime if you’re interested in volunteering at the Takeover event please email Brendan Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you next week!
