NUA - London Buskers Day
Chairman of NUA Entertainment, Paul Hardcastle with Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
NUA Entertainment, are proud to become the Mayor of London's official record label in aid of supporting National Busking Day in the capital. NUA provided the main stage in the form of our Airstream mobile stage with Pete Gardiner supporting in the glorious weekend sunshine.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: 'We are thrilled to be joining up with other cities around the UK for the first ever National Busking Day. It's going to be a great day, with talented street performers bringing their magic to our city centres, railway stations and squares. One of the things that make London such a vibrant city is the casual way you can encounter a wonderful piece of music or dance or even magic on the streets. It's this spirit of creativity that makes our city so welcoming. I hope this initiative will encourage all cities around the UK to value our fantastic street performers even more.'
National Busking Day also kicked off the "Busk in London Festival" which runs for three weekends during July and August, as part of the festival, musicians between 11-25 will get the chance of performing in locations around the capital, with our own Pete Gardiner being an official ambassador helping nurture the talent of the young musicians taking part.
