Back for its eighth year, the Edinburgh Big Beach Busk will take place from 12 noon on Saturday 26th 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!
