Buskers and Street Performers Festival


2016 June
Annual Event:
We hold the Buskers and Street Performers Festival to celebrate and showcase the variety of talent we have in Cambridge, and to educate the busking community on the importance of following the Street Performers' Code of Practice.

The code of conduct aims to ensure that businesses, residents and visitors can enjoy a time-honoured tradition, which goes back to medieval times when wandering minstrels and bards travelled from place to place and acted not only as entertainers but also as news reporters and message bearers.

We do not pay buskers to take part in the festival, but ‘passing the hat round' is fine as long as the code of practice is followed at all times.


Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
