Community is taken seriously at the O2 Centre. As well as our charity partners we support a number of charities and community groups by providing space, free of charge, either in the mall for bucket collections or in our Venue space for fundraisers or meetings.
See below for a short gallery of some of the charity/community initiatives we've hosted recently.
Busking at the O2
Here at the O2 Centre we believe in providing a platform for quality entertainment & talent in London & enjoy the vibrant atmosphere such acts can bring to our centre.
If you wish to come and perform here at the O2 Centre as a busker, it couldn't be easier! All you need to do is send us a SoundCloud and/or YouTube link of you performing & a few lines about yourself. If you have neither a SoundCloud or YouTube account, we may ask you to come into the management office for a very informal and brief audition. You should be prepared to play one or two pieces giving an idea of the range of your performance.
You would not need to bring PA and this should take no more than 15 minutes of your time.
If successful, we will issue you with a signed letter which you'll need to keep with you when busking in the centre, and you will be asked to sign a code of conduct form requiring you to abide by the regulations of the centre. You will when be added to our register of approved buskers.
If you are interested in busking at the O2 Centre & being part of our Centre Stage initiative or wish to discuss the suitability of your act, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, giving details of your performance, any relevant links and a mobile phone number.
Please note that if an audition is neccessary these are held at irregular intervals through the year and you will be contacted at our earliest conveniance.
Each year the O2 Centre partners with 2 charities. One is Land Securities' national charity partner and the other a local initiative chosen on by our team at the centre. For the 2016 - 2017 year the O2 Centre's charity partners are Mencap and Spear Camden.
