Are you a busker? Would you like to swap the windswept streets of York for the plush surroundings of the Grand Opera House?

Well then, good news! The theatre is offering buskers the chance to play in its bars during the run of Once The Musical in February 2020.

Once is an uplifting story of a part-time Dublin guitar-playing street entertainer. The book is by John Carney, with music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

It is based on the 2007 film of the same name, and features the Academy-Award winning song Falling Slowly.

Three brilliant buskers (soloists or bands) will be selected to entertain audiences during the week. There will also be a cash prize for the winners.
