Riverside Festival Charlbury 16-17 June street performers POSTPONED
BE PART OF THE RIVERSIDE FRINGE 16-17 June THIS FESTIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL LATER IN THE SUMMER DUE TO RISK OF FLOODING
We are looking for street performers to entertain the crowds at this year's Riverside Festival in Charlbury Oxfordshire. This is a free festival, so none of the acts or the festival crew are paid, but it's a great opportunity to showcase your talent and there will be a meaningful prize for the most popular act, tailored to suit the performer(s). Anyone with talent, young or old, professional or amateur are welcome, whether their talent is stand-up comedy, juggling, streetdance, snake charming, story telling or even just standing still as a statue. Each festival goer can pick up a token on their way in and drop it in the hat of their favourite busker. At the end of the weekend whoever has the most tokens wins. To be assured a time slot register before the event by sending your name, a one line description of your act and when you’d like to perform to firstname.lastname@example.org
Now in its 17th year, Riverside has become a major fixture in Oxfordshire’s music calendar, with more than 30 acts playing across two stages. Despite the work involved and the cost of putting on an event of this size, the festival is still run entirely by volunteers and still free for all to enter. It’s a truly family-friendly festival, with a dedicated kids’ area kitted out with a bouncy castle and activities. Last year over 5000 people attended Riverside and the organisers are expecting similar numbers this year.
FESTIVAL OPENING TIMES Saturday 16 June: 12.00pm – 10.00pm Sunday 17 June: 11.00am – 8.00pm To get the latest on Riverside visit riversidefestival.charlbury.com
