Nelson Buskers Festival - Buskers on the Church Steps

Saturday 2nd-Sunday 3rd February 2019

Bring blankets and cushions and enjoy a night of crazy and delightful entertainment. Delicious food available from onsite stalls. And remember to save some cash for the talented performers!

This year’s programme:

Hero-san - Japan - an acrobat, breakdancer and gymnast. Herosan's otherworldly balancing, outrageous humour and chopstick skills will have audiences spellbound.

The Atari Show by El Goma - Argentina/Germany - comedian and juggler.

Sara Twister - Australia/Germany - contortionist and acrobatic archer. One of the only professional contortionists in the world who, whilst balancing on her arms, can fire a bow … with her feet! Ready. Aim. Fire!

The Silver Starlets – Canada – All-female aerial acrobatic show. Full of glam, glitz and glitter, the Starlets use a 6m-high free-standing trapeze rig for their stage. They twist, tumble, bend, climb and fall.

Basketball Jones - New Zealand - basketball freestyle and comedy juggling - ball skills like no other witnessed.

One of three locations over four days.
