How do you go about getting a busking license for somewhere in the UK?
#2
Ring your local council and ask for a busking/entertainers liscence. They'll forward you to the right department, answer a few questions for the man or woman who's in charge, and voila, you're sorted.

Excuse me, but what the hell is "busking"? That word is scary.

Okay cool. Cheers

Does any one know how much they cost roughly? And how old you have to be to get one?

I didnt realise you need a license to do it, but busking is very good to get up your playing in public confidence and i'd recommend it just for good practise. Also if you lucky might make over a tenner in an hour

Most councils gove em out for free. It's just to stop half a dozen people fighting over the same spot.

Some really snotty councils make you do an audition first.

I never got a lisence...Explains the arrests lol :P
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!

I went to my council and they said they don't give them out. Scottish Borders Council is mine. They also said that busking is essentially begging. Arseholes! Lies! Filthy lies!

i've never done it, but from what i've heard you just go to your shire (council) and ring them, and ask for a licence, or if you need one (different places have different laws). They should tell you about all the different rules and stuff too: like if you have to move every 30 minutes, etc
