We’re really excited to bring the first ever Oxjam music gig to Halifax on Saturday 15 October from 12pm (noon) until late. More than 30 local bands and artists will be singing live music across three venues in Halifax, all in the aid of raising money for Oxfam – to help save lives and reduce poverty worldwide. You can buy tickets to this event by having a look at our ticket page.

Tickets can also be purchased by going to visit our friends at REVO RECORDS (26 Westgate Arcade),

The OXFAM shop (Crown Street), or COOKIES BAR in the evening (Princess Street).

If you’d prefer to donate, then please do. Whatever you can give will be appreciated and will help Oxfam continue to make a difference – something which they’ve been doing for more than 70 years now.

Oxjam Halifax is pleased to announce 4 fantastic artists who are playing on 15th October.

Barron  are appearing at Oxjam after a huge Summer with many festival appearances throughout the country such as Dot to Dot, Tramlines, Long Division, Blackthorn, Glass Butter Beach, and the Leeds Festival demonstrating their meteoric rise this year.

Park Fires are a female, electro-pop duo from Leeds. Heavily influenced by both the synth-driven sound of 80s heavyweights The Human League and Depeche Mode and the fierce choruses of female-fronted 90s bands.
