Westminster council are picking on Covent Garden buskers again, as they do every few years.

(Gets to the point at 7m35)
There's a petition at www.savelondonbuskers.com

Well worth watching the video.

Signed the petition, I don't think many more needed to get over 5000, although I'm unsure because if you load the page the signature counter ticks up. Reload the page & it starts again at the same number?

new to me. an open air alltime streetcircus, it seems (maybe not when it rains). hardly ever seen a place with several buskers \ streetperformers at the same time - maybe in front of Centre Pompidou; there must be more places like this over the world, I reckon .. Melbourne?, Seattle?, Central Park, New York?, .. dunno.

Edinburgh is boss town during the Fringe Festival.

Street performance still seems alive and well here in Brighton as far as I can tell. The area around the West Pier has been buzzing with musicians, jugglers and skateboarders etc..

Wow - If I am not mistaken, Jim was busking at Covent in the early nineties. I worked the More Balls stall for about a year there. The buskers were the centre of attraction. It would be sad to see such a great tradition come to an end. Performers were fully miked up in 1992 and that's the way it was- and is. It would be like moving to a flat 2 blocks from Niagara Falls and then complaining about the mist. Cherish it!
