National Busking Day is upon us, folks!
16 cities will be participating in the event on Saturday 18 July, where special busking pitches will be available to help artists share their talents. Locations include Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Canterbury, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Exeter, Gateshead, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Margate, Newcastle and York.
Street performers from around the world have also been booked to perform at some of London’s biggest tourist spots, including Trafalgar Square, Kings Cross and Leicester Square Gardens.
From there, National Busking Day will kickstart three weekends of performances by international street entertainers at the iconic locations in Central London.
The best bit? It’s all free!
