Performers Beat Poverty
Oxjam is all about grassroots music. We love giving undiscovered gems like you a platform to shine, but won’t beat around the bush – without you Oxjam would just be empty stages and venues. By donating your time it’s you that makes Oxjam a success, and a successful Oxjam means more money to help beat poverty.
