As the festival season gets in to full swing across the Country, the town of Glenties is hosting its first annual Glenties Busking Festival. This is a very exciting prospect indeed, a weekend of fantastic entertainment for all the family set against the backdrop of this beautiful traditional town, and all of this for free!!
The actual competition takes place all day today with performances throughout the day on Main Street. Performers will be judged under 3 catagories… Talent, Entertainment value and crowd participation. It should also be mentioned that Busking is not just about musicians, and the Festival is open to all types of street entertainers.
Just because the judging is finished Saturday evening, the entertainment does not stop there! Entertainment will continue through the evening and into the night, with live music and performances on the street and in the pubs. Sunday will be more o the same with the presentation to Competition winners at 2p.m. on Sunday at the Bridge on Main Street. This will be followed by performances by all the winning acts and presentations of prizes.
This is a great opportunity for all the family to come and spend the weekend enjoying Live & Free entertainment.
