STUDENTS took to the streets to spread the word about their musical talents.

The team of 10 from East Durham College busked in Durham as part of the trip organised by its music department, with the aim of giving them experience and confidence.

The £50 they raised will go to fund future excursions.

Lecturer Marc Oliver said: “The performance around the Market Square in Durham helped give the students a new boost of confidence, and it introduced them to a new kind of live performance they have never encountered before.

“It also showed the students that by going out and performing in Durham they could use their fantastic talents to make themselves a little bit of extra money, as well as gaining more experience.”
