Cambridge Buskers and Street Performers Festival Week
June 12, 2015
For me, the 'Buskers Festival' began on Wednesday, when I had a short interview at Cambridge 105fm radio station to discuss the event. I also played 2 of my own songs live.
The event officially began on Friday, and I played at the Opening Ceremony, a clip of me playing at the ceremony featured on ITV News that evening.
During the Buskers FestivaI I had already been booked to perform at the Cancer Research UK event in the Grand Arcade which raised £815! This gave me an opportunity to dry my kit out as I'd got absolutely drenched.
On Sunday I took part in Greg Butler's radio show on Cambridge 105fm, and then went back to Bedford where I performed at the Devonshire Arms in the late afternoon.
I was told I had won the Cambridge Buskers Festival competition for the second year running on Monday, and was mentioned in the Cambridge News paper for recieving the accolade again. I would like to thank everyone who voted, and everyone who took their time to watch me over the festival.
As a part of the prize from winning the competition I will be performing at the Cambridge 'Big Weekend' Festival - timings TBC. (As far as I know I will be playing on the Main Stage on Friday and Saturday)
Congratulations to the international winners: Budapest Marionettes
