Topic: Questions on Busking in the UK?
Message: Posted by: lexy453 (Feb 18, 2015 04:18PM)
Hi there,

I am an American college student and I am applying for a grant to go to the UK and busk over this upcoming summer. Part of the grant application involves having a field contact in the area. I was wondering if anyone on here who is familiar with busking in the UK - I was hoping to go to London, Bath, York and finally Edinburgh for the Fringe - might be willing to help out? More than anything my questions would focus on busking culture in the area, so that I am prepared for each place I go to. Please message me if you would be willing to help out!

Thanks,
Drew
