Buskers’ festival excites Narooma


Buskers aren’t the only ones getting excited about Narooma Rotary hosting a Regional Busking Festival on Saturday 27 May as part of the Australian National Busking Championships (ANBC).

‘Buskers take pride of place at this festival and will perform at certain times at assigned locations around Narooma through the day providing a feast of diverse musical styles for everyone to enjoy,’ said Narooma Rotary spokesperson Sandra Doyle.

‘Already we’ve had sponsorship offers from several businesses some of whom are keen to host a ‘Busking Hot Spot’ outside their premises. For spectators, it’s free.’

She said Narooma Golf Club, the first major sponsor to come on board, will host the evening’s finals concert where a panel will judge the winners in various categories.

The Golf Club will also donate $1,000 to the People’s Choice award to the busker that gets the most ‘busker dollars’.

Golf Club General Manager Dominic Connaughton said the Club is delighted to assist Narooma Rotary with what will be a fabulous and fun community event. ‘It’s a great chance to showcase our region, our town and our Club,’ he said.

Buskers and their supporters are expected from south eastern NSW, ACT, Victoria and northern NSW.

‘The ANBC has grown over the last six years from being held exclusively in Cooma to being a truly national event this year with regional competitions in Stanthorpe, Noosa and Ballarat, as well as Narooma,’ she said.

‘It’s wonderful we have secured Narooma to host one of these regional championships.’

The winners from the regional events will be invited to compete in the National Grand Final in Cooma in November.
