Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Countdown to Oxjam

OxjamCiB has pipped me to the post with this one, but the more promotion for such a worthwhile cause the better…

Oxjam is coming to Birmingham! On Saturday 24th October, venues across the city will be hosting performances by numerous bands all to raise money for Oxfam in order to tackle poverty all over the world. It will help people earn a living; get an education; gain better access to health care and fresh water; and to grow more food. Every pound you raise counts.

Tickets are available for Oxjam Brum now. You can buy them here for the amazing sum of £6.

I will be posting a bigger article about the day itself soon, but there are a few fringe events coming up that will give a taste of what’s in store:
