Hogarth Club's Oxjam Thrilled The Crowds
Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden kicked off the music festival
Iron Maiden superstar and Chiswick resident Bruce Dickinson launched the third Oxjam music festival last weekend (19th October) at the Hogarth Health Club. There was a fantastic array of music, ranging from The Counterfeit Stones, to rock choirs, even a ukelele orchestra, which kept music fans and club members on their feet throughout the evening.
Here are some pictures from the event.

The festival which took place across Chiswick, saw 120 bands playing at ten venues locally all in aid of the charity. There was something for every music taste at the Hogarth Club, ranging from Chiswick Rock Choir, the Hammersmith Ukelele Orchestra, Mad About Gospel, Fusion, and many many more.
Music across W4 spanned across disco, indie, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Nu folk, Irish, acoustic, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Roots, Reggae and Rock, and all proceeds will be donated to Oxfam GB
