Pitch Disruption

Details of possible disruption to recommended busking pitches that we have been informed of can be found below. Performers are asked to be considerate of events taking place and adjust performances accordingly.

If you have issues with pitches being disrupted that are not listed, please email info@buskinlondon.com with the details.


Leicester Square is one of the busiest public spaces in London, especially during the run up to Christmas. With new businesses opening and installations taking place for events in the gardens, we ask that buskers pay extra attention to their surroundings when performing. There are likely to be a large number of vehicles and increased footfall through the Square, so please manage your crowds accordingly and, if necessary, pause your performance to keep everyone safe whilst vehicles are passing through.

There will also be performances taking place in the Spiegel Tent in the gardens from 11 November to 8 January. Performance times are:

Tues - Thurs: 8pm-10pm
Fri - Sat: 7pm-9pm & 10pm-12am
Sun: 7pm-9pm

Buskers are asked to end their performances before the shows start to avoid sound clash, both inside and outside the tent. The event itself will open from midday daily.
