Buskers Bash for Cash 19th April 2014

THE BUSKERS BASH RETURNS TO THE STREETS OF WIMBORNE.

We are seeking applications from performers for this event now!

The streets of Wimborne Minster will be filled with the sound of music from 11am to 4.30pm on Saturday 19th April 2014 when the BUSKERS’ BASH FOR CASH Competition gets underway for the second year . Entries are now invited. Please email

jo.skipp@btinternet.com for an entry pack. Closing date for entries 31st March 2014.

The acts will perform half-hour sessions at different pitches in the town.. The general public are the judges allocating tokens from their judging packs during the day. This year we will make the voting simpler, there will be opportunities at each pitch to purchase voting tokens (at a modest cost) to help us defray the expenses of organising this unique and fun event. The 6 winning finalists will be announced on Town Square (as soon as the votes are counted) and the top six will then perform at a Gala Finale at the Allendale Centre – 7pm start.

The top three winning acts will receive £250, £150 or £100 respectively.

Further great entertainment on the night will be provided by last years Buskers Bash winners Quinns Quinney

If you would like to support this event, we require volunteers to assist the buskers at various locations around town during the day, please contact

This event is supported by the Wimborne Business Improvement District (BID).IMG_0099

Ridgeway Fire: A Celebration of the Song Writing of Des Simmons

25 January, 7:30pmRidgeway Fire : a celebration of the songwriting of Des Simmons

 

The untimely death of Newbury songwriter Des Simmons in January 2013 robbed us of a unique creative talent. His songwriting was in the vein of classic alternative rock with nods to Ray Davies, Ronnie Lane, Patti Smith and the Velvet Underground. Many of his early band line-ups had a hard, fast indie rock edge from his punk/alternative rock beginnings in London and later this evolved into a folk rock acoustic sound inspired by the likes of Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and the Band. For this special concert the many musicians who played with Des over three decades come together from all over the country to showcase as many of his remarkable songs as can be packed into three hours. The proceeds will be donated to a charity of his family’s choice. Book early.
