Big Beach Busk 2014

So it looks like this weekend there are plenty of things to do ! Along with the Mela festival, this Saturday, 30th August- its also the Big Beach Busk down at Portobello promenade…

Its fairly simple really: A mile of promenade, a mile of buskers.  Come along and play or come down just to see the spectacle. 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, so expect to see some varied acts !!

And an exciting new addition for this year – is Rhymetimes. They  will be doing two sessions of rhymes for wee ones from 1pm to 1.30pm and 2pm to 2.30pm. It’s in Straiton Park (that’s Pirate Park) which is the little grassy play park right next to the boat club.
