Street performers urged to pitch up for TT 2012

Performers - from jugglers to magicians, bands to poets - are wanted to help add to the carnival atmosphere in Douglas town centre during this year’s TT festival.

King_ChiaulleeSMALLDouglas Development Partnership, the body that licenses street performers on behalf of Douglas Borough Council, is urging artists to come forward as soon as possible to book their pitch for the coveted TT period. Town centre manager Gill Anderson said: ‘In recent years we’ve seen how artists performing in the centre of town bring a sense of theatre to the main shopping thoroughfare.  TT, along with Christmas, creates a huge demand for performance slots and we’re willing to consider any kind of acts, be they solo artists, the massed voices of choirs, “living statues” or show-stopping zombies.  Whether you’re a first timer or an accomplished performer, we’d like to hear from you. In short, we want artists to look upon the town centre as their very own performance space.’


Slots are provided free of charge. Applicants should indicate the duration for which the slot will be required.
