4:37pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
DOZENS of people crowded into a charity shop to listen to singing superstars.
The Magic Numbers took over Oxfam, in St John’s Street, Colchester, on Tuesday to play a free acoustic set.
More than 60 people crammed into the shop to see the British band.
Romeo Stodart, lead vocalist and guitarist, thanked everyone for turning out.
He said: “We are really surprised and it’s so nice to see so many people here.
“There were even a lot of toddlers who were clearly attending their first show.”
The group were invited to play at Oxfam for their festival Oxjam, which attracts bands playing at shops across the country to raise money for the charity.
Mr Stodart said it was an opportunity they did not want to miss.
The band played five songs, including their breakthrough single Forever Lost, which spent several weeks at number one in the charts.
