Was it just us, or was anyone else stopped from busking at Broadstairs ? While I was away at the craft fair a jobsworth from Thanet Council told Trev he couldn't use council property [ was it the prom or the hard wooden bench ?] for busking without a licence. We had a regulation black and yellow collecting bucket too.
What a performance ! We had to get a photocard thingy and dangle it from Trev's person. Thanks to our friend in the campsite festival office for helping us out. Incidentally , if every itinerate , tinless folkie who played music on the seafront actually busked,
the festival would make more money for next time !
