    Hey - good for you. Make sure you don't need a licence for the area you're doing it in though. Keep it up and promote live music.

    £41 for charity so yes I would say so

    It was for two hours me playing viola and my sister's friend going around with a hat, it was in aid of the Kazi Mingi foundation http://www.kmf-web.org.uk/

    Think I might do it again, I dont need a licence where I am which is good, and I have quite a nice spot :cool:

    £41 seems a good amount, this is after my grade 7 viola exam so I haven't been in lessons for a week :eek:

    Someone encouraged me to do busking not long ago (bellydancing for me) because where I live there is no way for me to perform problem was I didn't like the idea of doing it in the middle of Winter. I probably would consider doing it though.
