Next Event! Busking Day on Saturday15 August at the Clock Tower

Hi everyone,

Our next event will be another of our popular Busking days. It will take place on Saturday 15th August at the clock tower in St Albans from 1030 am to 4pm.

Once again a whole host of local musicians have generously donated their free time and fantastic talents to busk for us all day, help raise awareness and funds for us.

It promises to be as ever a very entertaining day and one not to be missed ! We are immensely grateful to all those who have offered to donate their time and energy to help out and of course to all those wonderfully talented people who will be performing on the day. More details of the line up in the poster below, please do come along to this free event, we are sure you will enjoy it!

Grateful thanks to Denise Parsons for organising the musicians and to the wonderful people at The Boot St Albans for providing the Gazebo again this year!

Thanks as ever for your continued support,

The Crescent Team

Photos from the Fantastic Busking Event in St Albans last month raising funds for the Crescent

Hi all,

Please see below for some more photographs taken at our busking day fundraiser last month. Thanks to Andy Brain, http://www.andybrain.co.uk for taking these great pics, and allowing us to share them with you too. The day went really well, despite the weather, and we hope that our next busking event later this year will be as good, if not even better (if that is possible!!) Keep watching this space! Big thanks to Denise Parsons from Trestle Arts Base for organising the event, and also of course to all the hugely talented acts that took part too.

We should also thank again The Boot, St Albans, for providing food and drink on the day and for organising a raffle for us too as well as taking collecting tins. Big thanks to the Meating Room St Albans for providing free mini burgers, also to Lush St Albans for also handing out freebies on the day. Empire Records St Albans also lent a hand advertising the event, and also taking collecting tins for us as well for which we are very grateful.

Not forgetting of course all our amazing volunteers who did such a marvellous job collecting donations from the general public, and also handed out info packs and free condoms to passers by too.

All in all it was a very successful day and we are looking forward to holding another busking day very soon, now that the weather has improved!

Thanks as ever for your continued support,

The Crescent Team
