Buskers descended on Wymondham town centre on Saturday for Wymondham Music Festival's annual Busking Day.
Many of the buskers were making their first appearance at the event and were raising money for local charities.
Julian Gillett, from the Wymondham Music Festival team, said: 'It's been a lovely morning. The sun shone and the music created a good buzz in the town centre. I am very pleased that so many young people turned out to busk this year.'
To build up to the two week festival, which takes place between Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 16, there will two more market place music events next month.
On Saturday, June 11 progressive bluegrass group Britgrass Three will play and Norwich-based Brother Pit, a seven-piece string band playing a mix of traditional American and Irish songs, will serenade shoppers on Saturday, June 25.
