Do you want to be part of Oxjam 2015 in Leighton?

Organisers of Leighton Buzzard’s Oxjam music festival are starting to hatch plans for the 2015 event – and are on the lookout for fresh acts as well as old favourites to take part.

Scheduled to run as usual throughout March, it will be the seventh annual festival to be held locally. Last year, the amount raised for Oxfam through a series of more than 30 musical events was an impressive £6,575.

There’ll be one major change on the organising committee in 2015, with Ed Flach stepping down from the helm – although remaining part of the team – and Jill Warren-Taylor, who runs The Stag’s Open Mic night, taking over his role.

Jill would love to hear from local musicians with an interest in being part of the 2015 festival, or anyone with an idea for a gig or event.

Contact her on if you can help, or get in touch via the Oxjam Leighton Buzzard Facebook page.
