And what's really nice is that they also lay on a courtesy bus Fridays and Saturdays to get you home afterwards (15km radius).

Wexford Buskers & Street Performers competition will ensure that Friday evenings this August are going to be that bit livelier. Coordinated by Wexford Arts Centre, this competition, with €500 going to the winning act, will see musicians, jugglers, mime artists, actors, poets, snake charmers, mentalists, sword-swallowers and clog dancers taking ver Main Street 6-8pm each Friday through August. If you fit into any of the above categories get your application into WAC by Mon, July 27. Email info@wexfordartscentre.ie
