Buskers, Street Entertainers
  • Anyone who drinks in the Albion - most of em live down Gladstone Road near the GAP TOOFED PIKEY.
  • our worship leader is a character, he is called herbie and is a mowrie from new zealand, and yes i know i spelt that wrong, but i cannot get my brain in gear tonight.
  • some of the most unusual characters i have seen work in the local government offices, eg council, dhs, ss. they live on another planet to everyone else. they work to a different time frame, and have a different view of a budget. having dealt with all 3 departments, i have struggled to get them to understand common english, or get to grips with what is going on in th real world.
  • will someone get rid of that mexican with the pan pipes
  • jade clements crew leader she is bear fit
  • We could really do with some buskers & suchlike but they'd probably get robbed as soon as people started chucking money in the hat. Or beaten up by Pikeys or Pikey imitators, "I'm a Hilden" or "I know the Hildens"
  • I may have a go at this busking lark myself ...
  • Me!!!!!!!!!!!
  • The punk who was outside the marks and spencers in town for a while then dissapeared. He was always wearing the same Rancid t-shirt with his leather jacket, which loads of old school punk band patches. And his dog as well?
  • That goy with the curly hair and rubbish 80s leather trousers that sings the same miserable indie tosh everyday (please, go and get a REAL job, you're certainly old enough now surely?)
  • Pervy Pete and Nervous Nick on the 513 to ruckinge
  • wel i went up town saturday (15th nov) n bloody hell it woz lyk walkin into an over the top circus or fun fair, or woteva the hell it woz. from morris dancers, to NKS jazz band - oh the koolness. to a helter skelter n crappy little stalls. and sum1 selling normal naff balloons blown up for 50p. u can buy a pack for a pound! c'mon ashford get sum decent entertainment
  • theres arron the trap who gets fings kicked @ him! poor soul!! hes fairly entertaining!!!
  • Has anyone seen "Toad of Toad Hall" lately? He is also known as the fat controller and sits in county square outside Marks & Spencer watching all without blinkin.
  • me nd a cuple of mates got completely shitfaced with a local tramp at the station once...the one that wears the big black beenie, but then we got chucked out and nearly arrested coz i went crazy and strted throwing beer bottles at the station monitors...........ahhhhhh good times
  • ronnie the singin tramp....weekdays...5:00 till 9:00 pm
  • two guys here, have formed about 3 hundred bands yet havent gotten a drummer..... Stu and nick please finaly get a proper band!(they are actualy quite good when they arent lazy asses.)
  • gotta be Eric the drunk with his wooly hat...wot a guy... also the new guy who sits with his dog and a bottle of white lightning and shouts at the dog a lot...
  • stanhope buskers
  • the guy who hangs outside the post office singing the verve
  • The guy with a scorpion tattoed on his face The guy who dresses like a cowboy
  • buskers r funny, especially wen theyre drunk
  • Plenty of people to entertain you and I don't mean the buskers. It bothers me that a pond has been deprived of it's life somewhere.
  • Too many of them. What, are we London overspill all of a sudden!!
  • Only those bloody foreign beggars
  • Blossom of course... comes up with some nice stories if uve got the time
  • the cool old guy who sits outside burtons with his electronis keyboard thing,he has a white beard which tempts a tickle and he played 'kum ba ya' 4 me and my friends
  • The Thompson twins hide behind one of those shelters in Vicky Park, and if you coo at them in the style of Ultravox, they may do an impromptu line dance
  • they dont bother cuming to ashford cause its full of porpers....... not that im one...
  • Outside the County ne nite after 9pm on the bench u will always find a drunk tramp out cold.
  • it is quite entertaining kicking the homeless
  • The old man who plays a weird bontempi organ thing outside WHSMiths, you can hear his groaning "Ooooh Oooooh OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH" from the bottom of East Hill
  • Do Tramps count?
  • The usual place for buskers in ashford is outside Marks & Spencers (obviously!)
  • Listen For Rob Leigh. He's got black curly hair, he's about 35, and he plays his own stuff, James Taylor,Bob Dylan,Verve, or just about anything you might ask.
  • the cruisers are the street entertainment here
  • A good place for street entertainment is always outside Cales!
  • The council have attempted to pay people to busk, but nobody actually wants to spend any longer in Ashford than is absolutely nessecary.
  • Although not they`re not really street entertainers. Watching very drunk youngards finding it harder to walk up East Hill than down after a night on the P%&$ is highly amusing!
  • Ashford is world-renowned for the birthplace of (a) South American Pan-pipe quintets (ponchos compulsory) and God-squad rockers
  • some old geeza me and arron stop to chat with sometimes
  • Ermm, poor standard, but the guys who sell the big issue have wicked senses of humour.. You could chat all day!
  • Sometimes you can find good buskers outside the Post Office.
