Monmouth Busking Festival - a first!

New for 2014, Monmouth is to have its own Busking Festival. Inspired by Nick Penny who has organised The Coleford Busking Festival for the last three years we are turning Monmouth into a town of live music throughout the day on July 26th.

The zones – the idea is to have busking zones throughout town hopefully including White Swan Court, Beaufort Arms Square, Church Street, outside the Shire/PunchHouse, The Oldway Centre, Monnow Bridge. We are deliberately avoiding having zones where the pavements are narrow.

The open mic stage will be at the Robin Hood with performance slots throughout the day. The festival committee will choose five acts to go on to play the Main Stage in Blestium Street on Sunday 27th,  Carnival Sunday, after the carnival prizes have been presented.

Buskers- turn up on Saturday 26th July at The Robin Hood to book your slot on the stage.  Busk in any of the zones around town.
