Busking at Mermaid Quay

Busking on the Quayside at Mermaid Quay

Mermaid Quay is Cardiff’s premier venue for licensed professional busking. During the summer months we have thousands of people pass through visiting the various shops, cafes, bars & restaurants.

We are offering a unique opportunity to all performers including:

  • Musicians
  • Jugglers
  • Living Statues
  • Street Entertainers
  • Magicians etc!

If you are interested in applying to busk on the Quayside then please do take a look around the website and fill out the registration form.  We’ll then be in touch to arrange an informal chat and potentially get you booked in to perform.

Busking on the Quayside runs from May through to September.

How does Busking on the Quayside work?

Busking on the Quayside is quite simple. As a Licensed Busker you register your interest by emailing marketing@mermaidquay.co.uk. Once we receive your interest, our Events Manager will be in touch to arrange an informal chat and induction down on site.

After we’ve been through all the Health & Safety induction you will be able to book in to busk on any available days. As a busker you’ll have access to our online events calendar where you will be able to see free days.
