7th Singapore Buskers' Festival

 
 

It's buskers' time again for Singapore this November. Experience nine hilarious days with the world's best street entertainment from 15 - 23 November 2003.

The annual festival, now into its seventh year, has grown leaps and bounds. It has won accolades and awards from the International Festivals & Events Assocation USA and it is now the 2nd largest street festival in Asia, after Japan.

Singapore will be set abuzz with bright lights, hilarious street shows, festival fringe programmes, festive shopping and F&B deals.

Each year, thousands and thousands throng the streets for the sheer madness of the festival.  Last year, some 500,000 people watched the festival.  Hats are still passed around after each show to collect for charity.  Todate, the festival has raised more than $1 million for charity.

Check out Boat Quay Singapore River promenade & the Orchard Road pedestrian mall for more performing pitches.

This year’s festival's opening special is the Buskers' Grand Parade on the 1st evening of the festival on 15 November 2003 at 7pm on the Orchard Road pedestrian boulevard.  The Parade is set to be the most visual, most lively and spontaneous procession of international street performers, stiltwalkers, masquerades and costume dancers. Come and party in this wildest carnival celebration.

The President of Singapore and Mrs Nathan will grace the Opening Charity Evening of spectacular stunts, hilarious antics and musical virtuosity.  Dr Jannie Tay and Ms Jennie Chua chair the fund-raising organising committee for this dinner.  Donation tables are sold at $5K, $10K and $20K.  The contact person is Jessica Ong from the Community Chest of Singapore.  Nett proceeds from the charity dinner will benefit 4 selected family service beneficiaries from CommChest & Professor S S Ratnam Memorial Fund.

The Singapore Buskers’ Festival street shows are FREE.  Although there is no admission fee, such good theatre surely deserves an appreciative contribution to the performers’ hat at the end of each show.  This token of contribution at the street festival will be channelled to benefit the 4 selected charities of ComChest.
