Calls for entries for Frome Busks

Following the success of last year’s Frome Busks event, the competition is returning to the town centre on Saturday 30 March.

Frome Town Council are now calling for entries for this year’s event. Each act will perform a 20-minute set slot before rotating to the next key location in the town, with performances running throughout the day.

Cllr Al O’Kane said, “Frome Busks looks to build on the town’s already vibrant music scene as well as highlighting some of its best locations. It’s a way for young musicians to get a feel for performing live and could be the boost they need to take themselves to the next level – it really is an opportunity not to be missed.”

The competition is open to performers under the age of 25, with last year’s event showcasing some exceptional talent including Fresher & Angel, Garbage Queen, Archie Ttwheam, and James Harriman.

The performances will be considered by a panel of judges and the winner will be awarded with the chance to perform at 23 Bath Street and Sunrise Celebration Festival later this year.

If you are interested performing at Frome Busks, please contact Vivienne Whitaker atwhitakerv@frometowncouncil.gov.uk for further information.
