Oxfam raised more than £400 when its music festival OxjamBrum took-over the No.11 bus route in Birmingham for an afternoon of live music.

OxjamBrum, together with The Green Bus Company, navigated the outer circle route, starting in Kings Heath and picking up passengers and artists at 11 stops along the way.

Samba band Oyabatucada got the event rolling, entertaining passengers as they embarked outside the Hare & Hounds.

During the next three hours, passengers were treated to live on-board sets from James Rea, The Bluebeat Arkestra, Mellow Peaches, Tom Peel, The Traps, Miss Halliwell, The Courtesy Group, Susan Dellane, Misty's Big Adventure and a DJ set from Josh and Stuart from Tantrums. 
 
Simarjeet Kaur, OxjamBrum's fundraising manager, said: "The event has been a real showcase of what Birmingham has to offer.

"Passengers have visited some of Birmingham's most interesting neighbourhoods, been entertained by some of Birmingham's best musicians and raised hundreds of pounds for Oxfam in the process.

"There's been a book written about it, a website dedicated to it, a calender created for it and now we can proudly say Oxjam have takeover over it.  The number 11 bus route will never be the same again.''

OxjamBrum sponsors GotSeeN.com streamed all the action live from the bus to their website. A short edited video can be seen below.

The event, part of the Oxjam music festival taking place across the UK throughout October, was an appetiser for 'The OxjamBrum Takeover' which will involve six Birmingham venues on October 16.

Tickets are £6 in advance and provide access to all six venues throughout the day and night.

Acts include Sunset Cinema Club, Tantrums, Malpas, Isolated Atoms, Arcadian Kicks, Vijay Kishore and more. More information and ticket details are at oxjambrum.org.uk/takeover.
