Following on from the great success of ‘Buskathon’ in May 2010, we are pleased to announce ‘Son of Buskathon’.
Set to take place at Speakers’ Corner, Dam Street on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May 2011, ‘Son of Buskathon’ will be an opportunity to raise funds for Lichfield’s FUSE Festival. Last year’s event organised by Dave Simcox raised in excess of £2000.
This year all performers will again be encouraged to raise money through individual sponsorship with the aim of exceeding last year’s total and attempting to raise £3000 in support of FUSE.
On Saturday 14 May, buskers from all genres will be scheduled to play from 9am to 7pm and, with the following day seeing Dave Simcox (aka Bruford Low) and Chris Newcombe (aka George from The Born Again Beatles) busking for 10 hours in relay.
Anyone interested in performing or finding out more about this event, please e-mail Chris Newcombe at email@example.com
