Nelson Buskers Festival - Buskers on Trafalgar

Thursday 31st January-Saturday 2nd February 2019

Join us for some hilarious, weird, eye-opening, gravity-defying acts in the heart of the city, with lots of refreshment from the local cafes.

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 you've witnessed.

This is one of three locations over four days of extraordinary performances.
