The inaugural Natimuk Busking Competition will be a feature of the town’s farmers market on Sunday, December 9. The competition will feature first, second and third prizes of $100, $50 and $25, with five encouragement awards of $5 each.
Items must have a Christmas theme and may be a solo or group performance of almost anything – music (sung or played), mime, dance, poetry, juggling, comedy or any other genre – think fun, entertaining and suitable for a family audience.
All ages are welcome to enter with a specific invitation to younger buskers. A stage microphone and power will be available.
Three judges will adjudicate and buskers will be judged on entertainment value, audience engagement and creativity, as well as skill.
The competition will start on Sunday at 10.30am, just outside the old Natimuk Shire offices.
Buskers can request a registration form for the competition by calling Meg on 0428 871 484, while walk-up entries on the day will also be welcome.
