Buskers silence city’s Evensongmain
An unpleasant story from the Roman – now tourist – city of Bath, where buskers perform morning to night in front of the ancient cathedral. Their amplified activities have disrupted Evensong for quite a while. The Cathedral asked them politely to tone it down. Then they asked the council to intervene. Neither approach worked. So Evensong is now cancelled in Bath until further notice.
(You wonder why they didn’t just shut the cathedral doors. Or blast an amplified service out onto the square.)
