Answered By: 
The Mayor

Buskers are granted a free license to perform on LU premises in specific locations and at specific times.

They are not granted the right to sell merchandise as the areas where many of the pitches are located are often very congested - buskers are requested to observe all other safety conditions associated with the Underground.

This has been the case since the scheme was introduced in 2003.
