Redditch Business Improvement District (BID) has announced an exciting programme of street entertainment taking place on weekends 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. Beginning on Saturday 26th June, Street Beats will take place every Saturday and Sunday (between 11.00am – 3.30pm), concluding on Sunday 1st August. In addition to the six weekends, Street Beats will also entertain visitors for the whole last week of July.
Leigh Walton, Redditch BID Board member, says: “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.”
*Locations include Bandstand at the top of Unicorn Hill, Church Green, St Stephen’s and the top of Alcester Street.
