Guide to Busking in Bradford

by Bradford Council


Bradford Council have released a handy guide to Busking in Bradford.

Bradford Council welcomes the expression of musical talent that enhances the experience of visitors to the district.

Busking can add vibrancy, ambience, colour and interest to the streets and city centre spaces whilst also providing a platform for aspiring artists to be seen and heard.

These guidelines aim to provide you with information on steps you can take to minimise disruption to others when you are busking in the Bradford district.
