Grimes' wig, Noel Gallagher litho prints and more available at London’s Oval Space this Saturday (9 May)
This year’s Rumble In The Jumble charity jumble sale takes place this weekend (May 9), in aid of Oxfam and the people of Nepal and Myanmar.
The charity event takes place at London’s Oval Space this Saturday (9 May), organised by BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney and The Music Circle. Proceeds will be used by Oxfam to help promote gender equality in Myanmar and provide better hygiene for women in Nepal.
Among the music-themed items on sale are the first ever amp owned by Ed from Bombay Bicycle Club, two of Grimes‘ wigs, festival raincoats from Belle & Sebastian, signed litho prints from Noel Gallagher, Oasis T-shirts signed by Andy Bell and more.
Founder Emily Cooper says that the event is “about women empowering women and gender equality”, adding, “when around the world only 22 percent of all national parliamentarians are female it’s important we as women all stand together and this is what’s drives us”.
Cairney added, “We’ve had so many people come to us this year that we didn’t expect… we’ve got Graham Coxon donating his old glasses… every year Lauren Laverne donates dresses to us… Lianne La Havas has given us a waistcoast.”
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Sankey from Summer Camp will host a stall at the event, while Denai Moore will join Cairney on DJ duties.
The fourth edition of Rumble in the Jumble runs from 12 noon until 6pm.
