Armidale to host Coffs Harbour International Buskers and Comedy Festival for a day

Armidale families are set for a real treat this school holidays with a big day of free activity on Tuesday October 2, first week of the school holidays.

To be held in the Beardy street mall from 10am a gaggle of international and Australian buskers from the Coffs Harbour International Buskers and Comedy Festival will take to the street and should have the city enthralled and laughing all day.

It’s all thanks to the Armidale Regional Council who are keen to activate the city centre with a full day of activity.

Kicking off the day will be Kaboodle the Clown who made a visit to Armidale earlier this year when the event was launched. Kaboodle, AKA Rhett Morrow is from the Gold Coast and works as a professional entertainer.

He won the 2015 & 2016 Australian Street Performers Championship and in 2017 completed a back breaking and onerous eight months at the Beijing Acrobatic School.

This is the school that trains all the amazing Asian circus acts. He studied acrobatics, circus skills, aerial, equilibrium and contortion. He is excited about coming to Armidale .

The day will finish with a concert by X Factor grand finalists 2014 Brothers 3.
