Funds raised at the Jericho Christmas market will go towards the cost of fixing the clock at St Barnabas Church.
It has been broken for months and stuck on 9.33am.
On Sunday the berth at the new public space in Jericho Mount Place played host to two large choirs at the Jericho Xmas market.
First to perform were the renowned Jericho Singers under founder Steff Pirrie.
With 34 members, their voices rang out in a series of songs including a spiritual to Jericho entertaining the scores of shoppers at the Xmas market and passers by.
The second performance was by the20-strong choir of St Barnabas Church under the direction of Philip Burnett.
They were accompanied by four musicians from the Oxford University Press orchestra to perform carols.
Shoppers were also later entertained by Thurston and Son, formerly of the Oxford Beatles, and Tim Child playing pop and rock tunes.
Twelve stallholders sold artefacts from expensive artwork to pottery and jewellery, knitwear and German sausages.
The church itself had a stall selling Jericho’s best kept secret – Emma Bridgewater mugs of St Barnabas and Valerie Petts’ paintings of the same. The fair is thought to have raised several hundred pounds towards the repair work.
