CROxjam music festival a big hit in Croydon
Four days of live music featuring more than 100 bands took place in the town centre last week.
The CROxjam music festival ran from Thursday October 3 to Sunday October 6 at a variety of venues in the town centre.
It is part of the nationwide Oxjam events which all raise money for the charity Oxfam.
A range of acts from jazz to hip hop and classical to rock and roll all featured over the course of the festival.
Festival organizer, John Bownas, praised the support he had received from venues and volunteers to make the event open to all.
He said: “The energy that has to go into something like this is intense.
“I lost nearly half a stone in the last week just because of the pressure that builds up in anticipation of everything that could go wrong.
“But everyone was fantastic, and we ended up with such a great team that the weekend really went off with very few problems at all.”
