*Do you love performing? Well we want you, lots of you to perform  & do your thing.

it could be music, maybe dance or a bit of poetry, perhaps some theatre or chalk pavement creations.

Its your chance to celebrate your talent and share it with the rest of us.

Do get in touch if you want to know more, and be included on the website.  

But there is nothing stopping you from just turning up on the day.

   We also feel there are not enough of, shall we say, the older generation of street performers.  

Its time to remind those youngsters life is not over just because we have a few more wrinkles & grey hairs.  

We were all young once.   As I say to my kids “my body maybe getting older but my heart is still young”.

 Well its been another amazing event for 2018. Although the weather started out moody and windy by the end of the day we had fabulous sunshine. The format changed slightly , keeping it in the town centre. For many it included the discovery of Beres Yard, a little gem within Blandford. Take a look at our 2018 photos in our Gallery.  If you have a great photo send it to us and we will include into our gallery. So thank you to our photographers. And of course to all those that helped with the day.

Planning has started for 2019

and we have the dates




Sun  15th Sept

*Our Aim   

For all workshops and events to be free or low cost.

However this will depend on us raising the funds.  The way I see it, if every one in Blandford  

or who plans  to visit gave just a  couple  of pounds  in lieu of tickets  then we will reach our  target
