Busking and street entertainment

“On 15 March 2017 the Community Committee approved and adopted the busking and street entertainment guidance ‘Welcome to the Canterbury District’.

Busking and street entertainment is an important part of our district’s cultural life.  It adds colour and vibrancy to our public places and provides enjoyment for residents, visitors and businesses.

The council is keen to foster a vibrant street culture, provide a platform for dancers, artists, performers and buskers and align this to the needs of the local community.

This best practice guide for busking / street entertainment has been produced collaboratively through engagement and support from a wide range of organisations such as the Musicians’ Union, Keep Streets Live Campaign, the Business Improvement District (BID), District Watch, Kent County Constabulary, local businesses, residents and councillors.

This guidance has been based on a nationally recognised best practice approach to busking / street entertainment.”
