Street Music came back, for a second year, bringing great, live music by local artists to the heart of Poole! 

Many thanks to:

  • All the performers who gave their services for free

  • To Poole BID for the use of the stages and PA

  • To Bournemouth University for their support

  • To all the shoppers and visitors who donated money via the buckets, or who bought raffle tickets.

You helped us raise just over £700 for Routes to Roots

Not did you enjoy some great foot-tapping music, you've also helped us with an amazing launch for the Club's project to raise money for the Poole-based charity helping the homeless - Routes to Roots.
