Musical Busking Workshops - GENERAL INFORMATION

The Musical Busking Workshops are a way of enabling young people (under 18yo) to develop confidence to play music in public and to later play on their own as a busker (if they so wish).

Purpose: Aim at busking on your own beyond the workshop: develop confidence to play your music in public, learn your responsibilities as a busker, learn what to pack, learn what is important to you, and how to manage your area, and the audience... whilst enjoying your music.

Details applicable to all busking workshops:

Your responsibility as a player:

  • Bring your musical instrument and music, appropriate clothing, water and food, and a will to learn and share
  • Give yourself enough time to setup and start on time
  • Use the supplied equipment respectfully eg microphone, amplifier, music stand
  • Respect the other workshop participants
Our responsibility:
  • Organise the legal use of the public space
  • Provide the resources to advertise the workshops and support the player such as microphone, amplifier, music stand
  • Ensure the player whilst playing is safe
  • Facilitate the learning of each player seeking feedback
NOT our responsibility:
  • the well-being of players registered for the workshop but awaiting playing is not our responsibility.
    It is expected that the well-being of players awaiting playing falls under the responsibility of their parent or accompanying adult.
