Should You Sign This Petition?
Earlier this year a community of artists, musicians and concerned members of the public asked York City Council to rethink their policies towards street performers which had become unduly restrictive. Your support in signing the petition led to York Council making significant positive changes and led to an improvement in the relationship between buskers and the authorities.
Now Camden Borough Council are proposing to introduce one of the most restrictive pieces of busking legislation in the UK. It will empower council officials to seize musical instruments, to impose a fine of up to £1000, and to sell instruments if the fine is not paid within 28 days. It drastically threatens artistic and cultural freedoms in London and would set a dangerous precedent for other councils.
Would you please consider taking the time to sign this petition to protect the street performers of Camden? You have helped us make a real difference before and your support would be appreciated now!

Camden Borough Council: Don’t Banish the Buskers! Keep Streets Live in Camden
Street culture in Camden is under imminent and real threat. Under plans being drawn up by Camden Council, Street Performers face a fine of up to £1000 for the ‘crime’ of busking without a license. Council officers will have the power to seize musical instruments and other equipment, the tools of a busker’s trade, and to sell them if the fine is not paid within 28 days.
They are currently conducting a public consultation on their proposals to introduce a draconian licensing scheme for busking. If this scheme is introduced, it will be one of the most restrictive busking policies in the entire United Kingdom. Buskers will have to pay an annual fee of up to £123 to perform on the streets. A presumption against the use of wind instruments (including flutes and recorders), as well as any form of percussion (No bongoes or bins) or amplification (regardless of volume level) will apply.
