Information for Buskers

We would like to encourage street entertainment throughout the Festival to add to the atmosphere. There are no bye-laws in Helensburgh that would prevent anyone busking, however please consider the best practice guidelines below, and note the legal situation – if the Police ask you to stop you MUST do so!

Special notes for food vendors:

Copies of ALL relevant certificates should be supplied with booking forms and these include food hygiene certificates, electrical testing certificates, and public liability insurance. Anyone selling alcohol must supply certificates as above and is responsible for obtaining the appropriate licence from the licensing authority, in this case, Argyll and Bute Council. An area for drinkers must be allocated and fenced off and notices must be displayed stating that no alcohol can be taken outside the fenced area. As required by the Environmental Health department all units must have washing capability for hands and utensils as well as colour-coded chopping boards and coding charts on display.
