Get ready for the biggest event to hit Mansfield this year! The Oxjam Mansfield Takeover is back for the second year running to bring you the best entertainment provided by over 50 local and touring artists, all playing for free, to help raise money for Oxfam.

Over £4,300 was raised in 2012 for the cause, now this year we’ve raised the bar to reach over £5,000 to support this fantastic charity; helping them fight poverty around the world.

The format is simple: 7 venues – over 50 artists and 1 wristband. All you have to do is purchase your wristband and enjoy this brilliant voluntary-led community festival.

The festival takes place at The Intake, Bowl in Hand, After Dark, The Ram, The Old Library, St Mark’s Church, The Red and in the town centre. There will be something for all the family – from pop to punk, and buskers to brass bands and children’s entertainment in the market square.
