Radio Horton was once again proud to support this year’s Deer Jam event – the most successful once since the live music and real ale & cider festival started in 2015. Over 1,000 people came along during the course of the day to hear local bands and musicians play live, including Dirty Jack DC, Stevie Cooper – The Coopers, Stuart Layzell, Damian Black, Til Dawn, Neva Mynd and the SKAletrics at the festival, which was hosted at Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn – Banbury’s oldest pub.
A huge thanks go to all the artists who generously gave their time for free in order to raise much needed funds for registered charity Radio Horton. All monies raised from the raffle will go to the Save Our Horton campaign. The draw will be held on June 12th and prizes include a night’s accommodation and two tickets to a theatre show, £100 cash and a tour for four people of the Hook Norton Brewery. Speaking just after last night’s event had finished, Jem Morey, partner at Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn, said he was delighted with how the event went. “It’s been amazing, our most successful one yet. It’s early stages, but I think we’re around 20% up on last year’s festival – just incredible.
Radio Horton compered Deer Jam and its team of volunteers were out in force doing collections throughout the 10 hour event. Radio Horton’s Lisa Simmons said: “This is the perfect showcase for all the talented local bands in the town has and it’s also held in the best and oldest pub in Banbury.”
Radio Horton is sincerely grateful to Ye Olde Reine Deere, Hook Norton Brewery and all the Deer Jammers for supporting our charity and coming along and having a great time. Bring on Deer Jam 2018!”
The entire show was recorded by Radio Horton and will be broadcast to the Horton General Hospital patients. The organisers confirmed there will be a Deer Jam in 2018 and dates will be announced in due course.
