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.
