We are happy to announce that we are introducing a new busking location running from July 23 to September 28.
As many of you know, CMHC has been working on a new public space underneath the Granville Street Bridge, called the Chain and Forge. Since its launch in May, this space has hosted many well attended events and is quickly becoming a new favourite spot on the island with the installation of new murals, public seating and a uniquely designed cedar stage.
The busking location will be located directly in front of the cedar stage. This location will be open to music solo acts, group acts and variety shows. The space will be programmed in tangent with Island Plaza as there may be sound conflicts if both places are active at the same time.
On days that the Chain and Forge is available, there will be open busking locations at 12:00pm, 2:00pm, 4:00pm and 6:00pm and Island Plaza will be fully closed during the same time.
On Monday, July 23, the change will be implemented and the space will become available.
