The OEM Music Marathon is a 12-hour community event and charity fundraiser, celebrating musicians and music groups from across our local communities. Continuous live music is heard alongside food, drink, board games, and 2nd-hand stalls.

The Music Marathon celebrates the power of music in bringing people together from our local communities, and the vital role music plays in the life and wellbeing of the city and surrounding areas. This year, all proceeds from the Music Marathon are being split between Christian Aid and One Equal Music…


Christian Aid seek to eradicate extreme poverty by tackling its root causes. For over 70 years, Christian Aid have been standing with the poorest of our neighbours. They work in 37 countries, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality and justice. Christian Aid seek to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty by:

Exposing poverty throughout the world
Helping in practical ways to end it
Highlighting, challenging and changing the structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.

Our flagship East Bristol Schools outreach programme.
Singing for the Brain provision for those in the community with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Providing Choral Scholarships to young talented singers at the beginning of the careers.
Promoting and celebrating choral music through our ‘Great Sacred Music’ series.
Putting on a range of community-focused creative events, such as concerts, gigs, talks, and our annual Music Marathon.
