Worthing Oxjam Festival Returns this October

The local, fundraising festival that is Worthing Oxjam Festival will return for a second year taking over seven venues in the town with 60+ acts performing on Saturday, 10 October 2015.

Oxjam is a festival created by local people for local people to raise money for the work that Oxfam do throughout the world.  Since Oxjam began in 2006 at least 1.3 million people have been to one of more than 5000 gigs and over £2.5 million have been raised. During October volunteers across the UK will be taking over towns and cities to create the biggest charity music festival in the country. With local music people are making a global impact and the team in Worthing will be working with others across the country to make this the biggest year yet.

Worthing Oxjam Festival will take place at Alehouse & Kitchen, Bar 42, Oasis Lounge (Cellar Bar), The Empress Suite, The Warwick, The Worthing Lido and We Have Sound Guitars.  Live music will run from midday to midnight with Bar 42 and The Warwick providing DJs to take festival goers through to the early hours. There is a variety of genres across the line-up so there should be something for everyone and there will be a free gig planner available at the wristband exchange.

The aim for 2015 is to continue the association between Oxjam and the people of Worthing and to build upon the success of last year’s festival. Worthing Oxjam are still looking for volunteers to help the festival run smoothly so if you are interested in helping out then you should email jaxoxjam@gmail.com or call Jax on 07799747377.
