The first ever Birmingham Busk event took place today at New Street Station to raise money for charity.
The event gave local musicians and performers a new way to show off their talents, all in aid of raising money for Action for Children.
The act that is judged to be the best will also secure a permanent busking site at the station.
A big busking event takes place later at Birmingham New Street Station, as street performers and musicians will take to the floor in the central part of the station to showcase their talents.
The event, which has been organised by charity, Action for Children, and Network Rail, will also see whoever is judged the best performer given a permanent busking spot at the station.
The first Birmingham Busk is a fantastic chance for the many great performers in the city to have fun and entertain the crowds on a busy Saturday at New Street station.
As well as wowing the crowd with a dazzling performance there is a permanent pitch up for grabs. We'll also be collecting money to help us continue to support disadvantaged children from our region.
Come along and be entertained for free and contribute to a great cause.
It's getting this morning, finishing at 5pm.

The airfield has great drainage and the ground is still firm despite this week's heavy rain.
As a precaution we've got extra trackway coming into the car parks and around the showground this year, so our visitors shouldn't face any problems.
