Red Brick Oxjam – Saturday 19th October – Red Brick Building, Glastonbury

oxjam-roundel.jpg-500x400This is a free entry event but it is suggested that everyone who attends makes a donation to Oxfam… Oxfam’s Oxjam Music Festival has taken place every year since 2006 with the continued objective to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. The idea is for volunteers to arrange gigs under the Oxjam umbrella and each year hundreds do just that with Oxjam music events taking place across the UK. On Saturday 19th October, The Red Brick Building will host its first Oxjam event in association with Pop Up Café, The Bocabar and Strode College. There’s already an impressive line-up of local acts that are thrilled to get involved. The event will run in two sections with acoustic performances taking place from 12 noon until 6pm before the amps are plugged in at 7pm and the party really kicks off. Here’s the full line-up (although more may be added): 12.00-12.45 Mr Keep Calm & The Cancelled Cheques 12.45-1.30 Henry Wacey 1.30 – 2.15 Craig Priddice 2.15 – 3.00 Daniel J Shaw 3.00 – 3.45 Rich Maya 3.45 – 4.30 Minor Works Unit 4.30 – 5.15 Steve Henderson 5.15 – 6.00 StumbleFoot 6.00 – 7.00 Break 7.00 – 8.00 Nick Parker 8.00 – 9.00 Missart 9.00 -10.00 My Story 10.00 – 11.00 Hot Sister Co-organiser Gary Smith, a musician himself known as Mr Keep Calm, will open an event which he expects to be popular. “It’s a great cause and a fantastic venue to hold it. There are some amazing acts already lined up with a diverse range of music and more are welcome. The event is free but we hope everyone attending will donate just a little bit to Oxfam. It’s a small price to pay for a brilliant night out.” Keep up to date with this event by visiting the official event page on Facebook
