The busking guidance for Bristol is available HERE. Buskers should follow the guidelines, which are designed to help businesses who suffer from music being played too loudly and for too long.

If your business is being disrupted by busking, please report them on 0117 922 2500 (option 3). Reports to this number will be sent to officers in the team who will attend if they are available.

The busking guidelines can also be found on the Bristol City Council website: Busking in Bristol –



What our retailers say

“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
