The Australian Academy of Music often have busking days for their students and community. “Its a great opportunity to play in public in a very friendly atmosphere, and once we found out how many talented artisans and makers we had within our community we thought it would be great to support these locals by hosting a market day as well. It also gives the busking event an authentic feel for the musicians and any coins collected by the buskers are donated to local charities.” says Lesley Morris, director.
Bring the family or your own audience if you are busking , coins for the buskers, and some dollars to enjoy all the treats at the market.
