In an exclusive giveaway, Cherwell has five pairs of tickets to see Palma Violets at their show at the O2 Academy Oxford on November 28th! Even if you don’t know the band, their live shows are famously chaotic and filled with the band’s trademark reckless abandon.

All you have to do to enter is tell us, in 100 words or fewer, what is your favourite album of 2013 so far and why. On November 25th, we will pick the five most entertaining entries and announce the winning albums on facebook. Email all entries to [email protected]

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
