In 2012, we launched our first takeover which involved over 60 bands playing in 6 venues. We were able to beat our fundraising target and raise just over £12,000 for Oxfam. We have had an amazing few years and have now raised more than £33,000 in total. We hope 2015 will be bigger and better than ever!
Oxjam Reading has raised over £33,000 in the past three years. The money we have raised is used for humanitarian aid around the world. Presently money raised by Oxjam is being used to provide urgent aid in Nepal.
Oxjam Reading Takeover is the most successful takeover day in the UK out of some 55 other Takeovers. This year we want to smash our previous years. So we are having more venues artists and bands. The Oxjam Music Festival is the biggest national music festival in the UK.
