Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, near Ringwood, is looking for local acoustic talent to help mark its 25th anniversary.
Twenty-five buskers are being sought to take part in a unique ‘Music in the Park’ event on 7 July – one for each year since the Park’s opening in 1988. The event is a flashback to the inaugural event 25 years ago when buskers helped to celebrate the opening of the ‘new’ country park, now the third most visited in England. Solo acts, accapella groups, local choirs or even Guide or Scout groups can apply.
‘Music in the Park’ is running in conjunction with Wave 105’s ‘Cash for Kids’ charity, which is committed to supporting local children under the age of 18 who are financially, socially, emotionally or physically disadvantaged. Buskers can register for a place on the Wave105 website. Go to www.wave105.com/charity click on ‘all Cash for Kids events’ and follow the links. The whole £10 registration fee will be donated to Cash for Kids, and places will be limited to the first 25 acoustic applicants.
