Open Day



Do you have a talent or creative skill you'd like to showcase? Or are you looking to do some volunteering in the community but don't know where to begin?


The Guernsey Street Festival is holding an Open Afternoon in association with Guernsey Arts to offer advice to performers looking to make their mark.


WHEN: 12th February 2023 2pm -4pm
WHERE: Oak room at Les Rocquettes Hotel


There'll be stalls where you can learn all about how to perform well, the legalities of busking, and any electrical equipment you may need. Or if you simply wish to volunteer or get involved another way, we'll be on hand to tell you how.

Guernsey Arts Commission: Meet the team at the Guernsey Arts Commission, find about how you can get involved with events and how you can apply for a busking license.


Equipment booth: Mark Guillou - teacher, technician and Guernsey stalwart -  will be helping performers understand what gear you need and how to use it. Tips on different levels for different spaces and adjusting your levels.


Performance health and legal rights booth: Lydia Pugh - professional musician, vocal coach and award winning composer - will be giving advice on how to stay safe as a performer, whether legally or with your health.


Stage presence booth: Dom Ogier - professional musician, frontwoman and seasoned performer - will be giving out tips and tricks on how to capture your audience and build confidence on stage.


Open Mic booth: Rachel Dawson - up-and-coming singer songwriter - will be showing you how its done and giving you the opportunity to have a go yourself, with the option to audition for this year's Guernsey Street Festival.
