Oxjam House Concerts
Part of Oxjam Beeston 2018
What is a house concert?
A Beeston Oxjam House Concert is a small intimate acoustic or unplugged concert held in someone's home on a date that suits them at anytime of the year. Our aim is that each concert will raise at least £100 for Oxjam, although how this is done is up to the hosts – perhaps by selling tickets to friends, refreshments or simply by making a donation - whatever suits you. House Concerts are private events that don't need to be advertised or ticketed publicly and we don't need to publish your address.

On August 12th we held a concert in our garden in Newthorpe.
Shiftin’ Sands were our headline band, from the Oxjam Artist list.
We also persuaded a number of other musicians and singers to join the line-up, giving us a total of 7 different acts.
Due to the weather forecast being unpredictable we erected a number of gazebos and found enough seats for the 50 people that attended.
We provided food and drink, and with several people donating cakes, we managed to raise £300.
The afternoon was a wonderful experience, we had so many comments and e-mails from those that attended and performed, saying how much they had enjoyed the event.
Many thanks to Shiftin’ Sands and all our other acts for making the event so enjoyable.
If you like music, I would thoroughly recommend the Oxjam initiative, as it is a great way to raise money with family and friends.
Many thanks to Richard Hinsley for playing his beautiful compositions on our piano at our house concert last Sunday afternoon. And thanks to all of you who came and raised £250 for Oxjam Beeston by buyng tickets and donating for refreshments.
