Busking and Street Entertainment

If you are interested in Busking or performing street entertainment on Poole High Street you will need a permit. This consists of a simple form and understanding the code of conduct.  You will then need to return the completed form with 2 passport sized photographs. The permit application form and a copy of the code of conduct are available as downloads to the right hand side at the top of this page.

From 1 April 2017 the busking and street entertainment permit will cost £25 per year and applications will only be granted following a successful audition

Please be aware that the maximum time allowed per busker in each location is 2hours a day. Overstaying your welcome may lead to you being moved on. Persistent breaking of the rules may invalidate your permit and you will then be breaching the Public Entertainment license. You are also asked to comply with any requests to move on from either a Council official, a Police Officer or one of the High Street Wardens. This is down to common courtesy, if we receive a noise complaint turning your music down may be a suitable compromise.
