Other than getting to one of the comedy nights (see Urzila Carson if you get the chance – she’s one very funny lady), I’ve missed most of the buskers festival (as days of it were rained out). I’ve always loved the festival, but have to say that since it’s been in Hagley Park and not the central city, I’ve not made the same effort to see it. For me, it lost something – as I really enjoyed the serendipity of turning round a street corner and finding an act about to start and finding myself drawn into their performance. Hopefully in years to come, we’ll see them back in the city centre again.
Mario Queen of the Circus at Restart Mall today. He’s a funny guy and I’ve seen his act just about every time he’s come to the Buskers Festival.
