Performing for Cleethorpes at Christmas

No Christmas event is complete without live entertainment. Cleethorpes at Christmas is no exception. We’re looking for talented local acts from the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area to perform at our event and get everyone into the Christmas spirit.

Who Can Perform at the event?

If you’re a solo musician, band, choir, orchestra, drama group, or street performer, we’d love to see you perform at our event. Preferably the act would have some sort of link to Christmas (e.g. at least 1 Christmas song in a music set), and we’d also prefer your act to be acoustic. This is a family friendly event so your performance content must be appropriate for all audiences. 

How will I be performing?

On the Pier Gardens site for Cleethorpes at Christmas we’ll have a covered 5m x 5m stage with full PA system, stage lighting, power, and a technician to aid your performance. All you need to do is turn up with your instruments. 

Each act will be provided with 1 or 2 slots to perform in. These are normally an hour long but some slots are shorter (45mins) and others are longer (90 mins) to allow for the size of audience.

What do I get in return for performing at the event?

In return for your performance we will provide all performers with free entry to the event across the 3 days. Further to this we will allow all acts to have a busking collection during their performance. If you are a charity or non-profit organisation then you are not classed as a busker and so will need a street collection license for the event. More details on this can be seen on the NELC website here: 

How do I get a slot to perform at the event?

Please use our online form to sign up for slots to perform. The form will ask for your availability across the 3 days of the event. Out entertainment coordinator will then provide you with slots based on your availability and the availability of other acts.
