Oxjam's Party In The Park is an annual event raising money for Oxfam. Our first ever event took place on the 18th June 2016 and was a total hit, with some of the best live music the south west has to offer, sun, fun and smiling faces.
In 2016 we raised a brilliant £470 to aid the work of Oxfam in fighting poverty here in the UK and over seas.
We couldn't have done this wouth out the amazing support of the bands & musicians, stall holders, volunteers, attendees and support from the Friends of Upton Park so THANK YOU!
We are doing it all over again this years, bigger and better than before! Please check out the bands page for the 2017 line up.
We will see you in Upton Park, Torquay on the 17th June :)

WHAT IS OXFAM & WHAT DO THEY DO?
Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved. 15 more years and we can end it for good.
To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are also needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive.
We will always act, we will speak out, and we won't live with poverty.
On average for every £1 received by Oxfam, They invest 84p on humanitarian, development and campaigning work. They invest 8p to raise further funds, and They invest 8p on support and running costs such as paying the salaries of staff who work all year round to deliver their work and who ensure we are effective and accountable.
