Hopefully the sunshine will remain for this great event, now in it’s seventh year, and something which offers a little respite after all the hecticness of the Edinburgh festivals ! The Portobello Big Beach Busk is taking pace this Saturday, the 27th August from noon…taking place all along the prom, this promises to be an exciting day filled with musicians, street performers, artists….any type or kind of performer is welcome.
“No rules. Just Busking. You can be any kind of street entertainer you like from a one man band to an orchestra, a mime/robot, a choir, balloon modeller or magician. We’ve had brass bands and tenko drummers alongside salsa bands and some amazing singer songwriters.”
The sandcastle competition that ran at the same time in 2015 makes its return this year. You can start building from 12.30pm and judging is at 3pm.
