The Takeover forms part of Oxjam’s month of music, which runs through the whole of October. Oxjam is a festival with a difference: thousands of fundraising music events are put on by ordinary people – from an intimate acoustic gig in a book shop to an epic night in a top London venue – making it the biggest line-up of any music festival in the UK. Last year, more people attended an Oxjam event than went to Glastonbury.

Oxjam Shepherd’s Bush Takeover is aiming to raise £10,000 this October.

Georgina Marcantonio, who is marketing/organising the event, said:
“We’re really excited to be playing our part in making Oxjam Shepherd’s Bush Takeover part of a month-long musical celebration right across the country. Even more importantly, this event is all about showing that the best in local music can have a global impact too, so everyone who comes along and buys a ticket can rest assured that as well as having a great time, they’ll be helping to change lives around the world too.”
There have already been several fantastic fundraising events in the lead up to this event, including a pub quiz at The Defectors Weld, a fabulous stall at the Bush Festival – complete with human fruit machine – that raised awareness and cash! a very successful singles night ‘Love & War’ at The Goldhawk, a dance workshop at Westfield, a Frock Swap and a cupcake master class at the Defectors Weld!

So as you rush to get your tickets just remember one thing - this is being put on by volunteers - so say thank-you when you see them!
