Network Rail and Busk In London team up to provide summer of music at London King’s Cross station
Network Rail and Busk In London have joined forces to create a summer schedule of music for travellers at King’s Cross station.
Running throughout August and September, there will be more than 60 musical performances on a newly installed stage on the concourse in King’s Cross station to help welcome back passengers to the railway following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions.
The performances will take place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 12:00 and 18:00 until Saturday, 11 September and will showcase the best busking talent which the capital has to offer.
Laura Murphy, King’s Cross station manager for Network Rail, said: “We’re really excited to have partnered with Busk In London to provide free, in-station entertainment for our customers.
“It’s great to see more passengers using the railway following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions and we wanted to put on these events to provide a warm welcome back for all those visiting us this Summer.”
Kate Jones, Programme Director for Busk in London, said: "Busk in London is delighted to be working with King’s Cross station to present a diverse range of high quality performances from artists on the Busk in London scheme.
"After many months of no live music, our artists are thrilled to be back doing what they do best. Whether passengers are arriving or departing or just visiting King’s Cross for the many retail and dining options, our performers will provide a fantastic soundtrack throughout August and September.”
