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.

Could this be you for 2020?

..And if its a yes, then thank you

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  then we will reach our  target.

So we have decided to sell festival participant tickets for just £1 and in return you will get a fun filled day , be automatically entered in our prize draw and receive a free cup of tea and biscuits on the day, and have the knowledge you helped make this happen.

Good luck , thankyou and most importantly enjoy the day
.

 

 

 

Thankyou for your support
