LONDON'S STREETS ARE PAVED WITH TALENT

You never know who might spot you performing on our pitches!

 

Hattie Briggs was spotted by Alfie Boe while performing on our Network Rail busking pitch at Paddington Station. Now he's taking her on the road as his support act. The 22 date tour culminates in the Royal Albert Hall.

 

Lucy May Walker was also spotted recently by Jeremy Vine while performing on our pitch at Charing Cross Station. He invited her to perform live on his BBC Radio 2 show.

 

Well done Hattie & Lucy May!

INNOVATING WITH TECHNOLOGY

 ACCEPT CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS

 

We partnered with iZettle in 2018 to create a new software patch to

pre-set contactless tipping amounts and keep the payment units awake

 

This tech innovation was a world first and enabled passers by to quickly and easily

tip a busker without having to wait until the end of a song

 

NEWS JUNE 2020

Contactless payments are more important than ever due to the global pandemic. Updated details about our partnership with iZettle will be posted here soon. In the meantime you can take advantage of the current half-price offer by purchasing a contactless unit at the link below!

Once registered you will need to switch on the specially designed Repeat Payments app in the iZettle Go app to ensure a smooth busking experience. To learn how click here

We created International Busking Day in 2015 as a hashtag campaign to help raise the profile of street performance and celebrate talent

 

Now in its 4th year street performers participate all over the world
