It sounds like entertainment lovers in Walthamstow are in for a treat in 2014 as The Mall Walthamstow has announced its search for the town’s next star!
The Mall Walthamstow will launch its Busker of the Year competition on Saturday, January 25. The contest will see one lucky singer/performer/act win a day’s recording session in the prestigious Cowshed Studio London www.cowshedstudio.com, providing a stepping-stone to becoming a professional performer.
The Busker of the Year Competition will also provide a platform for local musicians and artists to perform in front of thousands of shoppers each week.
Talented singers and performers will entertain shoppers every Saturday and Sunday until Sunday, November 30. There will be two designated pitches to choose from, both in and outside the centre and singers/acts can build local support and apply to appear up to three times during the course of the year.
First of all I'd like to say "what a great experience"!!! Fantastic cocktails, loads of vibrant bars with the whole concept set in good old London.
This is the first year I exposed myself to a week long drinking session in different areas per night trying out new cocktails and most definitely won't be the last time I participate. The concept itself was alluring enough to have me curious to what this week was about. You buy a wristband, receive a book and a map of where all the bars including pop up stalls are. Then set of on an adventure to locate these wonderful places and try each venues London cocktail week cocktail at a mere price of £4.
At the beginning of each year, I always set up my calendar to remind myself of London's biggest and best events that I would not allow myself to miss, whether it is storms from the Nordic Gods or Kim Kardashian wanting to cook me dinner. These events shall never be missed. For the past 3 years, Rumfest has always been on my list as one of the 'must go' events of the year, next to Notting Hill Carnival and London Cocktail Week. Every year it seems to get bigger and better.
