Twes we can

August 30, 2009 | 2 comments

Oxford Twestival is a night of musical entertainment, comedy and more in aid of Oxfam’s water sanitation project in Mali. We’ve got some great musicians lined up, there will be prizes on the night and the venue is pretty cool – anyone remember the old Point, above the Cape of Good Hope? That’s where we’re holding the event.

Here’s the details you’ll need to remember, complete with handy link to get a discount on your ticket if you buy in advance:

Oxford Twestival: September 13, 2009
The Cape of Good Hope (upstairs)

£5 in advance / £8 on the door

Okay, Twitter skeptics, so it’s got a kind of annoying name, but you don’t need to be a member of Twitter to attend, and the crowd promises to be a great mix of local artistic talent and professionals from around the area.

Every penny goes towards that Oxfam project, so not only will it be lots of fun, but you’ll also project the warm, fuzzy glow of someone who knows they’ve helped make a real difference in someone’s life.

There’s been a bit of bad publicity surrounding Twestival’s San Francisco incarnation, who kind of screwed around the DNA Lounge. Each Twestival is organized independently, and those shenanigans, while irresponsible, were unique; here’s the main Twestival response. I’m pleased to say that the Oxford Twestival’s organization has been very responsibly managed by Sylwia Presley.

  2. what’s irresponsible is you reporting negatively on TwestivalSF without getting your facts straight. i see that Oxford Twestival was a successful event and that’s great – i congratulate them. they worked very hard and got a wonderful result. the same can be said for San Francisco.

    i suggest you check your facts at the source before you slam people who have done a really outstanding job putting together a really fun event with lots of value for the attendees and sponsor and raising money for a very worthy cause.

    i’m sure you didn’t deliberately intend to badmouth anybody and the remarks were off the cuff. still. not cricket, Ben.
