We offer various seafront concessions which may operate between March and October each year on the beach, seafront or gardens. They are usually granted for one or three years.

We allow buskers to perform at specific locations on the seafront and in the gardens.

You will need to apply to the council for a permit, which is valid for six months, and inform us in advance when you would like to busk. Two passport-sized photographs are required for the permit.

The three busking locations are: Cobb Gate end of Marine Parade, opposite the performance area (Marine Parade Shelters), and junction of Langmoor and Lister Gardens.
