Oxjam, the biggest music festival in the UK, is a festival with a difference: thousands of events put on by music lovers – from large-scale festivals to local sponsored busks – during March taking over stages, back rooms and street corners to make music and raise money for Oxfam with gigs, DJ sets, busks and much more.

All raising money to fight poverty around the world. Since the launch of Oxjam in 2006, more than 36,000 musicians have taken part in almost 3,000 Oxjam events nationwide. The festival has raised more than £1 million for the charity since it was created in 2006: enough to buy 31,000 emergency shelters, safe water for 1.3 million people, or buy 40,000 goats.

Confirmed events across the country for March include:
The Mad Music March of the North - musicians taking to the streets in cities across the north of England to celebrate Oxjam.
Mamma-Mia and High School Musical sing-alongs in Dorset.
A vampire-themed ball with a metal soundtrack in Maidenhead.
A folk music pub crawl around the heart of Leighton Buzzard.
Battle of the bands competitions in Bristol and Cardiff.
'Charity shop rock' in Northampton - clothes from Oxfam, music for Oxjam, money for Oxfam.
