Street performers from around London will take part a celebration at Wembley Stadium to mark International Busking day on Saturday.

The celebrations will feature music, circus and dance acitivites and will be held outside The SSE Arena in Wembley.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan announced that performers from across the world will unite with performers from London to mark the third International Busking day which began in 2016.

Cllr Muhammed Butt the leader of Brent council, said: “It is an absolute pleasure to host International Busking Day in Wembley Park and celebrate busking and street performance.

"I hope it will give audiences, both on the ground in Brent, or joining in around the world, a taste of what’s to come as we warm up for Brent Borough of Culture 2020.”

Performers will be arriving from cities including Sydney, Reykjavik and Tokyo as well as famous English singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner - more names will be announced ahead of the festival.

This initiative by Mr Khan builds on the Busk in London programme which is helping to build the profile of street performers.

Mr Khan, said: “London has one of the most vibrant and diverse busking scenes in the world. This will be a great day for families across the city – and around the world – to get together and enjoy a fantastic showcase of the city’s talent, music and street performances.

“We are joining forces with other great cities to show that buskers make a huge contribution to creativity and culture."
