The Clonmel Busking Festival is a free festival that will take place on the streets and in the pubs of Clonmel from Friday, 12th August until Sunday, 14th August.

The aim of the organisers is to place as many local musicians and some well-known national artists in strategic positions around the streets of the town during the day, and then have those same musicians playing in the local pubs at night.

All money raised over the weekend will be donated to Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Every event is free of charge and people will be requested to donate their loose change if they feel like doing so, as is in keeping with busking tradition.

All musicians are donating their time and talents free of charge.

The organisers would be grateful if any of the local businesses could donate any of their resources to help make the festival a success.
