The Durham Streets Summer Festival 2013
For one weekend each year, the streets of Durham City are home to an international line-up of Street Entertainers, Jugglers, Unicyclists, Strong Women, Acrobats, Clowns, Circus Artists and professional merrymakers. The festival also celebrates the finest musical talent from across the UK, with shows in some of Durham’s most stunning and unique venues.
Durham bursts into life again this August as the very best international street performers take over the city for a seventh year. The street theatre and circle shows from around the world will amaze, amuse and delight all ages - from pushchair to pensioner, there’s something for everyone!
Look out for some very exciting news in the next few weeks as there’s a twist to the 2013 festival line-up, but in the meantime the dates for your diary are:
Saturday 24th August: Millennium Place from 11.30am and Palace Green from 2pm
Sunday 25th August: Market Place from 11.30am
Remember though, in the true tradition of busking, bring some gold or something that folds as the performers will be ‘hatting’ and it’s your donations that keeps them on the streets and enables us to put on this festival every year.
Even on rainy days - our artists want to perform for you. Bring your brolly, and laugh in the rain!
Every year Streets asks the audiences to vote for the favourite busker and at the end of the festival one of the performers is crowned ‘The People’s Choice’ for that year. Make sure you catch every show and then cast your vote (there will be festival crew handing out voting slips all afternoon). It really means a lot to the performers to receive this accolade, and it’s just another way in which you can show your appreciation.
