:spotlight: (CHRISTCHURCH) Comedians, daredevils, dancers, singers and acrobats will hit the streets in January to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the World Buskers Festival. Fifty-five performers representing 14 countries will descend on the city for the annual 10-day festival from January 18-28.
To celebrate 25 years, there will be five headline shows. After making it through to the America’s Got Talent final last year, The Boy with Tape on His Face is coming home to premier his new ideas. Urzila Carlson will perform her new show Unacceptable and the Topp Twins will entertain the crowds with their classic Kiwi humour. A Night at the Musicals, featuring Le Gateau Chocolat, will bring musical entertainment, as will Crossdresser for Christ, featuring Ginger Minj from RuPaul’s Drag Race.

New features will include a Buskers Bar and Night Food Market at the Arts Centre every night, a Cabaret Club at the Great Hall, and the Laugh Lounge at Sixty6 on Peterborough. Buskers will also perform at the Friday Night Food Market in Cathedral Square and in City Mall at lunchtimes outside The Crossing.

There will be 13 performance sites, inside and outdoors, including the Arts Centre, Christ’s College and Christchurch Art Gallery among others. More than 200 free day performances will take place around the city. The festival will conclude with the Buskers Best Bits show at the Isaac Theatre Royal on January 28.

The 24th World Buskers Festival, held last January, drew over a quarter of a million people.
