New busking guidelines - the first of their kind in Cumbria - have been launched to coincide with Street Music Month.
Cumbria Police, Carlisle City Council and representatives from ‘Keep Streets Live’ have collaborated on the new Guide to Busking.
A copy of The Guide to Busking in Carlisle can be found at www.carlisle.gov.uk and hard copies are also available from the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre and the reception of Carlisle City Council.
The Police and the City Council want Carlisle City Centre to offer balanced, fairly located pitches and a welcoming place for street entertainers to visit and play, whilst supporting the residents and businesses to also have a fair and balanced experience.
The busking guidelines will support Carlisle City Centre residents, businesses and those who come to entertain.
