We are now scheduling for all manner of entertainers (family friendly please!) to busk at the market. If you are interested email the Market Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, date & time requested, type/style of entertainment.
The basic details for busking at the market are:
Buskers are set up outdoors on the side of the Lion’s Chalet where the farmers are.
There isn’t space indoors for buskers. Sorry.
The back (lawn) area isn’t available for buskers as workshops are often occurring there.
Buskers determine if they perform in poor weather. There may not be space under a tent.
There is no access to electricity.
There is no charge for buskers.
You can sell your merchandise during your time slot.
The market averages 1000-1200 customers over the five hour market.
Busking slots are for one hour each, beginning at 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm and 1pm.
