Continental Shifts Finale

Winchesters summer season of street entertainment - Continental Shifts - will draw to a close this Friday 28th August as the Square, the Buttercross, and the High Street all play host to a programme of live early evening entertainment between 4.30pm – 8pm.

This week there’ll be entertainment in the Square from Noah Afro Music featuring a range of African instruments and drums. This will be accompanied by an African drumming workshop near the City Museum and some traditional story telling by Noah Messomo.

The Table Top Circus will once again bring their circus skills workshop to the Buttercross. Adults and children will have the chance to have a go at riding a unicycle, juggle clubs, and learn a range of other 'colourful' skills.

Meanwhile, on the High Street, Haywards Guitars will be hosting an Open Busk - a chance for local entertainers to wow the crowds. If you would like to book a slot at the Open Busk, please contact Christine Hayward on 01962 850 555.

Elsewhere on the High Street, Raven Tales will be bringing two very special giant guests, so keep your eyes peeled!

With all this and much more on offer, why not get together with family and friends and pop along to the City Centre this Friday.

Continental Shifts is a shared initiative between Winchester City Council and the Winchester BID, designed to offer summer entertainment for residents and tourists, and to support local businesses during the early evening period.
