Street performer guidance

You do not need a licence to busk in Lichfield city centre or across the district, but we do ask that all street performers follow our guidance.

Following our guidance will help us to maintain a happy relationship with city centre visitors, residents and workers.

Street performers should:

  • keep the volume down on any amplification
  • not stay in the same place for more than one hour
  • not busk close to any other street performers
  • consider the need for access to shops and footpaths
  • be reasonable and accept advice from council officers, especially if there has been a complaint

Please email us if you have any questions about this guidance.
