Busking

Guide to Busking in Kettering

Busking and other forms of street entertainment such as dancing, mime, juggling and puppetry are long established traditions which, when done well, adds to the attractiveness and colour of the town centre.  It can create a happy and pleasant atmosphere that provides pleasure and entertainment to both local people and visitors. 

Kettering Borough Council have developed a Street Performers Code of Practice. This is a voluntary code of practice for buskers and street entertainers in Kettering Town Centre. We have worked closely with local businesses to develop this guide which looks to set standards for busking and to encourage entertainment in designated areas.
