PUBLISHED: 17:01 31 October 2018 | UPDATED: 17:01 31 October 2018
Not just a celebration of our local music, Oxjam Norwich 2018 aims to be the “music festival that beats poverty”.
Oxfam’s fundraising festival returns to Norwich and cities across the UK this autumn and will raise money to help struggling families.
When and where is it?
Oxjam Norwich will take place on Saturday November 10 at multiple music venues across the city.
It kicks off at 12.30pm at The Birdcage and runs late into the evening, with a multitude of artists performing at different gigs across the city.
What can I expect?
In Norwich this year, the music event will include performances from local artists of all genres, from indie bands to spoken word poetry.
Beth Ramsay, production coordinator, said: “With this year’s lineups, we’re hoping to bring the audience on a journey from venue to venue.
“We know all too well the pain of lineup clashes, so we wanted to make the festival timings as cohesive as possible so you can pretty much follow it all as it progresses from the acoustic afternoon acts to the big closers in the evening.”
