Apple Pitches in England

I was just wondering about any decent or regularly worked circle show pitches in London besides Covent Garden and Leichster Square? Also what are some other cities in England and the UK that people work. The more detail (ie, names of pitches, how much of the year is it workable, night time or day time pitch) would be great.


Cheers

Cool

yo Byron,
how's it goin'?
If you are coming to the U.K, theres a few pitches out-side Covent Garden, it's a shame everyone saturates the place when there are pitches all over the UK,
Chester and York are amongst the most popular now that Stratford's stitched up by the council and the local acts and Bath has been screwed over by the restaurant that "owns" the pitch, but e-mail me when you arrive and I'll give you more up to date info,
AJ

Hey AJ, how're you doing? I haven't heard from you in ages. Where are you living and working these days? Are you still doing much street?

Hey Byron,
I did my first show for five months the other day, it was weird...I'm actually at college now, and I have a 10 month old son so life's changed a lot for me since I've seen you.......why don't you e-mail me when you're in the country and come up to the lake district where I live, there's not much busking to be done here, but it's on the way to Edinburgh,
heavy hats and safe travels,
AJ

England is a crap place to busk for the most part. You can do some good stuff at Bath, but they have noise regulations, and you can hit Bristol close by at the @Bristol thing. The bristol one is a new pitch, but skate naked do pretty well at it.
I would skip england and go strait to germany, or spain, or switzerland. England is crap, they don't take you seriously.
