Day 2302

Diary Of A Busker Day 2302 Wednesday January 31st 2024 Winchester High Street   Not too cold a day (10 degrees) but there’s quite a wind stirring up so it feels a bit colder than it should.  There was a bloke on a sax with backing tracks at the top spot and down near Sainsbury’s, a very loud generator, so… Read more →

Day 2298

Diary Of A Busker Day 2298 Wednesday January 23rd Winchester High Street.   Down at the crossroads it’s not long before some disruption occurs. Today in the form of a shouting man but at least it’s not aggressive shouting and intimidation such as that inflicted by that arsehole Gary Page, who I fortunately haven’t seen about since well before Christmas.… Read more →

Day 2297

Diary Of A Busker Day 2297 Sunday January 21st 2024 Winchester High Street.   Rockin’ Rob and his skeleton drummer are at the top spot and Meeta with her harp is down at the crossroads so I opted for the front of Debenhams – permanently closed, it seems. The weather’s a bit warmer; in fact, at 10 degrees it’s practically… Read more →

Day 2296

  Diary Of A Busker Day 2296 Saturday January 20th 2024 Winchester High Street.   Another cold day but at least it’s not as cold as yesterday in Chichester…or so I thought. In fact, although it’s a couple of degrees warmer, there’s a slight breeze coming down Market Street so it feels colder down at the crossroads. The good news… Read more →

Day 2295

Diary Of A Busker Day 2295 Farmer’s Market, East Street, Chichester.   I wish I’d never signed up for it. I mean it’s not as if they were paying me for it; “they” being West Sussex County Council, and “it” being the Farmer’s Market. But a contract is a bloody contract and I said I’d be up for it, weeks… Read more →

Day 2294

Diary Of A Busker Day 2294 Sunday January 14th 2024 The Buttercross Winchester.   I had quite a good coinage day yesterday but it was bloody cold; just above freezing and it’s the same today. Yesterday I was down at the crossroads and managed an hour and it’ll probably be the same today. No one at the top spot so… Read more →
