Guidance for buskers and street entertainers
We recognise that busking and street entertainment is an important part of our district’s cultural life and we encourage its role in creating a vibrant street culture.
Busking in the district doesn’t require a licence but we do ask that all buskers follow our guidelines, which include:
- not blocking highways and shop entrances
- letting local businesses know what you're doing
- no amplification between 9pm and 8am
- taking regular breaks and not repeating performances in each slot
If you have been unable to resolve a problem with a busker using the steps in our guidelines you should contact our Licensing team.
