Spring is about to burst onto the horizon and with it heralds the return of Frome Busks. On Saturday 18th March, the town centre will come alive with music and singing from 11am to 2pm.

Frome Town Council host this exciting annual event in association with Frome College, whose students will be performing on various stages in the heart of town including Boyle Cross, the Valentine lamp, King Street, the Westway and outside the Cheese & Grain and Black Swan Arts. Eight stages across town will host the students who will provide a spectrum of music styles with some well-known songs mixed with some original compositions.

Cllr Andy Wrintmore said: “This is one of my favourite days in the town; taking a wander through our streets and hearing live music from our up-and-coming students who may well be stars of tomorrow. Having it right in the centre, gives us a great excuse to explore the town and visit its many wonderful shops and outlets, so make sure the date is in your diary!”

The line-up will be announced nearer the time and any money raised by the busking on the day will go towards extra curriculum music performances and productions for Frome College students.

Frome Town Council has a Busker’s Code which sets out good practice and covers all forms of street performance including theatre, poetry and other speakers, you can read the code here.
