Frome Busks brings beats to the streets

The town will come alive with music when Frome Busks returns on Saturday 26th March. From 11am – 2pm musicians from Frome College will be bringing live music into the town centre, playing 15-minute sets across key locations including Boyle Cross, Cheap Street, King Street, the Westway, outside the Black Swan Arts and Cheese & Grain, and right up to the Valentine Lamp at the top of Catherine Hill.

There will be a mix of original and well-known songs, with musicians including singers, guitarists, pianists, drummers and even strings. A-Level Music Tech students will also gain technical experience by setting up the event.
