Wymondham Music Festival’s annual town busking day will take place next weekend.

Individuals and groups are welcome to turn up on the day and register in the marquee on the Market Place between 10am and midday on Saturday, May 26.

The African, Cuban and Haitian rhythms of New Buckenham’s Dead Goat Appreciation Society will be entertaining visitors in the Abbey grounds. Singer-songwriter, Johnny Steinberg, will be in the festival marquee during the morning.

John Wood, chairman Wymondham Music Festival said: “The Town Busking Day is a well-established informal event. Musicians pop up all over town creating a great atmosphere. If you have never busked before do come along on Saturday, May 26 and join in the fun.”

The 17th annual Wymondham Music Festival centred on Festival Fortnight, June 23 to July 8, but with more than 90 events, many of them free, from May to October, celebrates professional Norfolk musicians, combined with a selection of national artists and showcases local talent in this historic Norfolk market town.
