If you are, or know, a busker you may be interested in this. Apparently London Underground are licensing buskers for a trial period. You will be able to phone up and book a pitch at selected stations. The number to phone is 0845 330 9880, Monday -Friday 9:00-17:00.

I understood they were 'auditioning' buskers to ensure a semblance of skill/talent/ability to the proceedings.

Licensing and auditioning buskers,eh? Well, we've all experienced the manufactured pop groups in recent years, it will be interesting to see how this process affects street music.

If we can License Morris Dancers (Hired Assassins in disguise) then lets License Buskers and cyclists and how about BREATHING!!!
Now that sounds like a good one must PM the PM

No point in licensing THINKING, though... not enough people do it to make it worthwhile!

Licensing buskers is possibly a good idea, but auditioning is far too subjective... just because I don't like the way one person sings deosn't necessarily mean that they are bad... I wonder what criteria 'they' intend to apply, and how?!

Whilst we're at it, Orc, never underestimate the Power of the Morris! One carefully calculated jingle of my bells, and you will be sent to a place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth (and those who have no teeth will gnash their gums!)...

I wondered what the licence information was doing here.... and why he's been practicing all the old "favourites"....

He'll probably be on the District or Central lines... no foreign coins please, but shirt buttons we can always use.
