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

Busking Event at the Clocktower A Resounding Success

Hi all,

The busking event on Saturday was a resounding success having raised a wonderful sum for us despite the awful weather and the house (gazebo) being brought down as a finale !!

Huge thanks to the Trestle Arts Base and Denise Parsons for all her hard work getting the event going and also to all the talented musicians who so kindly gave their time and skill to make the event the success it was! We distributed lots of information and red ribbons too, rasing awareness of HIV in the City and beyond.

Here is a link to the latest news article, more photos to come of the day itself !
