Shipley to host busking contest
3:50pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
A battle to find the best busker in Bradford is set for the weekend.
Musicians are invited to a play off at the Waterside Restaurant and Bar in Shipley, where the audience will vote a winner to receive a cash prize.
‘Battle of the Buskers’ has been organised by the Oxjam Leeds Takeover Team and cash raised will go to Oxfam.
Takeover manager Matthew Mackey, a friend of Waterside owner James Downey, said: “We have set a target of raising £10,000 for Oxfam through our musical events this year, so being able to extend our reach into the Bradford area is great.”
Entry, on Sunday to the bar in Wharf Street, is free, but there will be a collection.
The first act starts at 3pm with a barbecue from 4pm.
