Looking forward to Oxjam

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 oxjamclapham.studio@gmail.com.

See you next week!
