MUSIC could be heard all along the seafront as B Sharp’s Busking Festival returned to Lyme Regis earlier this month.

Buskers of all ages showcased a fantastic range of talent, and B Sharp’s young performers entertained parents, locals and visitors in the shelters performance area.

There were also activities for children and young people to get involved with during the day including beach hut drumming, song-writing and a sound recording and effects workshop.

B Sharp’s music leaders and young trainees were on hand to support all the musicians when needed, and even gave their own performance to close the festival.

To help with its costs of running B Sharp’s on-going music programme for young people over the whole year, buskers donated 40% of their collection to B Sharp charity, and many donated all their takings.

Ruth Cohen, B Sharp director, said: “We were delighted to be able to run the popular Busking Festival on the seafront this year as last year it was held online.

|We were very lucky that we were able to run it as a COVID-safe event. It was really lovely for the young people to be able to perform again, after such a long time.”

B Sharp is open for young musicians to sign up now projects over the summer and weekly creative clubs next term.
