With just 98 days to go till Christmas, Douglas is looking for buskers to add atmosphere to the town centre during the festive season.
Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley wants street performers to register for a pitch in the town centre and entertain shoppers.
‘Street entertainment makes for a great atmosphere in the town centre at any time of the year, but especially at Christmas,’ she said.
‘We’re inviting applications from all types of artists - solo singers and musicians, brass bands, community choirs, instrumental groups - anyone who can add to the mix of street theatre.
‘Demand for pitches is always high, especially for the Thursday late-night shopping evenings, so I’d advise performers to come forward now as we’re drawing up a timetable and allocating slots for this peak period.’
For the Christmas season street entertainers must apply to Douglas Development Partnership, the body that issues busking licences on behalf of Douglas Council, no later than Thursday, October 24.
Busking slots are provided free of charge.
