Surrey Heath Museum’s festival ‘A Century of Sound’ takes place this year between 9th and 16th September. The festival aims to celebrate the musical heritage of the area – past and present. With a whole host of famous names from music, theatre and the arts originating from Camberley including hit band Bros, there is certainly something to celebrate.
As part of this week long celebration, we are looking for buskers to play in The Main Square and Park Street in Camberley where busking pitches will be available for daily street performances. A performance is anything that’s found to be entertaining – musical performance, storytelling, clowning, juggling and magic – use your imagination.
There will also be open mic slots available at Camberley Theatre on Friday 11th September. Open mic sessions give you a chance to perform. Whether you are a seasoned performing pro or just love to entertain – applications from all are welcome. Be creative with your performance – music, poetry, magic, comedy – the sky is the limit!
The best performance at the open mic night wins a prize and a star spot at Over The Moon taking place in The Mall on Saturday 12th September. Hosted by music entrepreneur Ivan Chandler, Over The Moon is an acoustic showcase featuring new and emerging local talent, with a performance by international musical theatre star from Camberley, David Ribi.
For the budding writers out there, we also have a literary event called PUSH. Hosted by the editor of PUSH fanzine, Joe England from Blackwater, it promotes new literary work and is a platform for new writers. The evening will feature readings from PUSH contributors along with a Questions and Answers session.
If you would like to be involved, you can submit a short piece of fiction or a poem which if selected, you can read out on the night of the event.
