Oxfam Festival Shop take over Jimmy’s for a day of live music and charity shopping

After a successful summer in fields around the country, Oxfam Festival Shop presents ‘Music That Matters’.

The one-day event brings  together ethical clothes shopping and a love for music in the heart of Manchester. It will be held at Jimmy’s in the Northern Quarter on Saturday 7th October between 11am and 5pm.

It will feature hand-picked vintage, one-off pieces and some of the best items Oxfam has to offer. The rails will be topped up throughout the day with brands like AdidasBurberry and Vivienne Westwood, so there will always be a treasure waiting whatever time you arrive. Volunteers have also prepared hand painted and customised jackets for those who love a one-of-a-kind statement piece.

The Northern Quarter’s own Oxfam Emporium will be there too with a range of books and music, if the clothes weren’t enough of a temptation.

Music That Matters will also play host to four exciting, upcoming bands from around the North West. Hailing from Liverpool, both The Blurred Sun Band and Samurai Kip will bring their energetic psych to the streets of Manc. Blackburn’s Anhedonia will strip their rock and roll back for the intimate show, while Bad Cardigan make the trip from East Lancs with their harmonious acoustic beats.

The event is free of charge, with all proceeds from the clothing sale going towards Oxfam. The money raised will help support those affected in recent disasters such as the Mexico earthquake, and also in long-term appeals like empowering women in the third world to stand up for equal rights.
