Back for 2014 – The Edinburgh Big Beach Busk
Back for its fifth year, the Edinburgh Big Beach Busk will take place from 12 noon on Saturday 30th August. Edinburgh’s Portobello seaside gets mixed up and musical for a day. People of all ages are encouraged to head along and entertain the public on the promenade.
The Edinburgh Big beach Busk say:
“No rules. Just Busking. You can be any kind of street entertainer you like from a one man band to an orchestra, a mime/robot, a choir, balloon modeller or magician. We’ve had brass bands and tenko drummers alongside salsa bands and some amazing singer songwriters.”
So basically, anything goes.
No need to book a place or buy tickets, just turn up and have fun!
New for 2014
A sensational new addition to the Busk, is Rhymetimes. They will be doing two sessions of rhymes for wee ones from 1pm to 1.30pm and 2pm to 2.30pm. It’s in Straiton Park (that’s Pirate Park) which is the little grassy play park right next to the boat club.
Bring a blanket and settle in for songs, rhymes and fun times for babies, toddlers and their associated grown ups.
Find out more about Rhymetimes at the Scottish Book Trust.
