A Preston pub is joining venues across the UK in raising money for Oxfam.


The Moorbrook is hosting the annual Oxjam festival.

More than six bands are on the bill at the live music festival in North Road.

Special ales and wood-fired pizza are also on the menu.

All proceeds for the event, which is £2.50 to enter, go to Oxfam.

On the line-up are Mylittlebrother, Chris Flynn, Mog Stanley, Picnic Area, Dirty Deluxe and Sound of Thieves.

Local act Mog Stanley is behind the show.

He said: “This is the second Oxjam which I’ve organised, the first one being at the ferret in October 2015. Deciding to have another go, I’ve curated a line-up which i’m pretty chuffed wiith, bands and acts that I like from all over the north west that I’ve either seen or stumbled across online.

“Alongside the music we’ll be selling raffle tickets for some excellent prizes that I’ve managed to secure and very kindly donated by Preston North End, DVino wines and With Heart Tattoo and of course Rich and Louise at the Moorbrook have kindly offered to host the event at their excellent establishment.”

Oxjam takes place on Saturday (16 September) from 2pm to late.
