The SCIRT World Buskers Festival programme of events showcases the very best of the best!

For the past 21 years, the SCIRT World Buskers Festival(external link) has aimed to stretch its wings to present the people of Christchurch with the best buskers festival in the world.

The 2015 SCIRT World Buskers Festival promises to carry on the tradition by offering a programme of events that showcases the very best of the best! We've enlisted fifty amazing street performers, comedians, fringe artists, musicians and visual artists that are destined to leave you mesmerised and in awe. Whether you're a fan of highly skilled acrobatics, hoola-hoopers, trapeze artists, musicians, dancers, circus and vaudeville skits, burlesque or you're simply out for a good belly laugh - we've got it all! 

In addition to one of the best street performance talent line ups the festival has ever programmed we've got some fantastic indoor shows. As always, and true to the streets from which we came, our 'street' shows run from 11am daily with performances in Busker Park on the L&P, Mini and SCIRT stages, as well as in the Botanic Gardens at the Popsicle Busker Kid Patch and we return to the Arts Centre with out new Market Square Stage, all culminating with over two hours of hilarity during the festival's very own SCIRT Busker Comedy Club (R16) - a variety show unlike any other!
