There are many street entertainers along this stretch. Meet anyone from Mickey Mouse, Darth Vader, a policeman in a tutu, or dance to steel pans, bongo drums, or crystal. The crowd gathered here are watching a breakdancer who is sadly is breaking nothing in the panorama.
This is my son Loki protecting London from Darth Vader.
Of the many street performers along this stretch, I tried to take a panorama in front of a policeman wearing a tutu. However whilst I was taking the last shot, I had my back turned and he whacked me on the head, much to the amusement of passers by, and I did not finish the panorama, I was shooting hand held and lost my position. Although maybe I should have put some money in his hat or something to have avoided being hit. I actually half admire him for spending his days hitting random Londoners and tourists over the head, when they have there pictures taken in front of him.
