The name says it all:- it's a web site by buskers for buskers about busking and street entertainment in Bath, with contributions from many of Bath's local buskers. Please note that this is not the official website of Bath buskers - such a thing would be a contradiction in our view. It is a website by some buskers in Bath.
You'll find these pages packed full of useful info about busking, and the answers that you always wanted to know to the questions you never dared to ask, such as: how do I get a pitch? Is busking legal? Do I need a license to busk in Bath? Should I give money to buskers?
Busking is NOT against the law: however there is plenty of law that the authorities can use against you if they decide that you are a problem
Causing an obstruction, or behaving in an abusive or threatening manner towards members of the public can of course get you into trouble with the police.
In addition, according to Bath and North East Somerset council:-
Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 noise in the street from musical instruments may be a statutory nuisance and the Local Authority is able to take legal action to abate the nuisance on prohibit or restrict its recurrence; this may include the seizure of musical instruments and amplification equipment.
