The one day pop-up will be held at ‘The Font Manchester’, New Wakefield Street from 3pm to 9pm on Saturday the 3rd of November. It will be open to those attending the Oxjam event along with ‘The Font’ customers.
The Festival Shop team has hand-picked pieces specially for Manchester. This includes brands such as Nike, Levi and Tommy Hilfiger, plus exciting one-offs. Accompanying these big brands will be an array of hats, headscarves, shoes and belts to complete any outfit. We have been stocking up on faux fur coats with enough vairety to suit everyone’s needs. The Festival Shop is based at Wastesaver, Oxfam’s textile recycling centre, giving clothes a second chance to be sold or resued and preventing landfill.
Oxjam Mcr will be hosted at five different venues throughout Manchester working with upcoming artists including the alternative band ‘Pacific’ and the comedic artisit ‘Chris Tavener’. There will be variety of music ranging from funk to garage rock to blues from 4pm – 11pm.
The money raised from the pop-up will go to support important Oxfam campaigns such as the recent Indonesian earthquake and tsunami crisis. Along with long term projects such as preventing violence against women in Bolivia and empowering survivors of sexual violence in Iraq.
