Street entertainers are very important to Southbank Centre and we are delighted to announce a new system for supporting and promoting busking on the Queen’s Walk.
From 1st June 2013 any artist performing on the Queen’s Walk will have been chosen by Southbank Centre's artistic programming team after taking part in an open audition process.
There will be clearly designated and marked pitches for circus acts, musicians, statues, walk by acts and dancers, and the site will always be looked after in order that street entertainers are able to perform in the best conditions possible within a safe and friendly atmosphere.
If you would like to perform on the Queens Walk please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when the next audition is taking place.
We look forward to welcoming you to Queens Walk.
