OXJAM Charity Music Festival, Matlock 2013
For such a small town I always find there’s something exciting going off in Matlock. It has a fantastic Victorian Market, a real community with the shops down there and there’s always something to do and see whether it be the lovely buskers outside the coffee shops or a fun event in the park. So when we heard there was to be an event raising money for Oxfam we thought we had to tell you about it!
From 30th October – 2nd November forget all about Halloween and Bonfire Night approaching, get yourselves to Matlock's Oxjam Music Fest. There’s events kicking off left right and centre and it’s all for a good cause. These guys want to raise at least £1,000 for Oxfam through the ‘Oxjam’ campaign that has swept the nation. It’s a great excuse to get out and see some local, fresh musical talent and help out a worthy cause at the same time.
On Wednesday 30th October head to the Monk Bar from 8pm as they have a great quiz and will be joined by Sweet Crumbs who will be there selling their delicious cupcakes.
On Thursday 31st October, aka Halloween, you’ve got a choice where to head to, or you can just do both!? At 8:30pm Twenty Ten Bar and Matlock Music Shop present their ‘Jam Night.’ From 9pm at Monk Bar you have the ‘Monk Unplugged’ event where you will find live music from Steve Wood, George Baxby and many more! At this rate Matlock will be bursting at the seams with people!
Friday 1st November you have even more choice of events… At Black Hippo from 7pm there is the Oxjam Album Launch. At 9:30pm at Monk Bar there is the Rockbox Stage that includes Alex Rennie, Benjy CJ and Oliver & Gareth, and at Twenty Ten Bar there is a 3-piece band playing the likes of AC/DC, The Beatles and more! Sounds like the perfect way to end your night.
Saturday also brings you a busy day with The Loft hosting 9 live artists and bands from 5pm, Black Hippo hosting “The Soul Food Tour” from 8pm, and Twenty Ten Bar launching “Exile” from 9pm.
Make sure you head down for the events taking place and donate to a fantastic cause. You can find full details on the poster below or you can head over to the facebook event page … https://www.facebook.com/MatlockOxjam
