47. Talent contest
hold a contest to showcase your talent, your friends’ and / or their families. Imagine a kind of ‘Your location’s got Talent’ as a one off event, or if you really want to make the papers and get the town buzzing, go for once a month for the whole year! Artists could donate to enter, you could suggest a donation at the door, or be creative, e.g. ask the audience for a donation as they vote to keep acts in or out!
