Busking Agreement

Chester has a thriving local busker scene and during the summer we were fortunate to attract buskers from around the globe. Most buskers in Chester recognise that they can impact nearby businesses if they play too loudly and will adjust the volume if requested.

Unfortunately, you told us that a small number of buskers were unwilling to turn the volume down, which was having a detrimental impact on your businesses. As a result, we met with Council Officers to create a busking agreement and signpost businesses to a body that can enforce the busking code of conduct.
