Why we do it

Saturday April 6th 2013 saw the first Big Busk – Happy Days in Shrewsbury take place in the town’s beautiful medieval centre. A celebration of community, music and talent in glorious sunshine. This remarkable event saw over 40 musical acts, made up of over 200 people, who filled the town with a carnival atmosphere. Performances covered a whole range of musical genres from opera and classical to contemporary and folk.
