The Fire Breathing Tuba of Tottenham Court Road – unique London busker in action

Recently, I’ve been methodically documenting the assortment of buskers seen on the streets of Brixton in south London, but this fella with a fire-breathing tuba surely trumps the lot.

Spotted just off Tottenham Court Road in central London, the top hatted musician parps along to a vintage soundtrack while fire pumps out of the tuba’s horn – I first saw him in action on the South Bank in 2014.

Although perhaps not quite as much fun as Cambridge’s legendary Busker in a Bin, I enjoyed watching this fella and was happy to throw some coins into his hat.

Here’s some photos of him in action.
