Busking is a form of street entertainment, people perform in the hope that people will leave a donation in appreciation for their talent.

Busking has been a very popular tradition for many years and performed and enjoyed by people from all walks of life.

People busk in shopping centres, railway stations and many other public places.

People of all different ages busk or street perform.

At one time a licence was not required to busk and it remains a bit of a grey area, it is advisable to check with the town council of the place you wish to busk for their guide lines and always ask permission if a pitch appears to be private land.

Busking is a tradition that reaches back for hundreds of years, with the lack of technology being able to record music it was a welcome form of entertainment. Today we see busking in many different guises, from that of the traditional singer with the guitar, to small bands and living art, magicians and acrobats. Some people stereotype buskers as beggars but this is not so buskers like to think of themselves as performers and being paid by tip or donation for offering their type of entertainment.

Many people spend a lot of time practicing and rehearsing there routines or sets, as mentioned previously, Buskers see themselves as performing artists and therefore want to appear to be professional in their work that is Busking.

Some people busk in the hope of getting 'spotted' by a talent agent, while others busk to earn money to live on.

Theoretically Busking is free so requires no layout for a venue.
