It’s still summer: keep on busking!

September may very well begin next week, but it’s still summer! We can at least try to convince ourselves of that. And really, who knows when it comes to the gloriously unpredictable nature of the British sunshine? Anyway, there’s still plenty of time to get busking, and, if you’re around the Edinburgh and East Lothian area, there’s not really anywhere better to do it than the Portobello Promenade this Saturday.

Portobello Big Beach Busk

This might not be Porty, but imagine this, with more live music than you can shake a stick at – the Portobello Big Beach Busk kicks off on Saturday 27th August from 12 pm.

It’s the 2016 Edinburgh Big Beach Busk!

Yup, it’s time for the Edinburgh Big Beach Busk in Portobello again and I, for one, among many, am looking forward to my third time out; I missed last year as the SRU had inconveniently scheduled a World Cup warm up game that same day. Still, at least I got see a few tries.

Well, if you want to play, or if you want to listen, it all kicks off from 12 pm so head on up tae Porty for a great way to spend an afternoon.  We can’t guarantee the sun unfortunately, but we’ve been lucky so far!
