Filming and busking in the city centre


We welcome creative activities that enhance the atmosphere of the city centre. Buskers and street artists do not need a licence to perform in the city centre, but they do need to follow our Code of Conduct, show consideration to businesses, shoppers and other artists.

You can find the Code of Conduct in the Documents section of this page.

If you have a concern with a busker in Leeds, please speak to the busker and if the problem persists then contact the City Centre Management Team.


Leeds welcomes film production crews to the city centre. If you are planning to film in the city centre please make us aware beforehand by emailing or calling 0113 378 6646.
