Redditch BID launches a summer of busking with Streets Beats

Redditch Editorial 23rd Jun, 2021   0

REDDITCH Business Improvement District (BID) has announced an exciting programme of street entertainment on weekends in the town centre throughout the summer.

Delivered by Indigo Arts, which is based in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Street Beats will see five busking points located around the ‘old town’ area of Redditch where a variety of talented, local performers will entertain visitors.

It all begins this Saturday, June 26 between 11am and 3.30pm and will take place every Saturday and Sunday before concluding on Sunday, August 1.

In addition to the six weekends, Street Beats will also entertain visitors for all of the last week of July.

Leigh Walton, Redditch BID Board said: “Redditch is a fantastic town to visit but, like many high streets, we need to diversify and give people additional reasons to come.

“We hope that all those who live in or near Redditch will see this as an exciting opportunity to enjoy some first-class entertainment that will get people literally dancing in the streets!

“The past 18 months have been incredibly difficult, so we’re really hoping this will give residents of Redditch a much-needed lift. As Louis Armstrong once said, ‘Music is life itself’, so as life returns to (almost) normal, we urge people to come and join us in breathing new life into Redditch town centre.”

The locations for Street Beats include the bandstand, Church Green, St Stephen’s and the top of Alcester Street.

Established in 2019, Redditch BID aims to support local businesses by improving the local trading environment.
