Just spotted this:
https://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/staffordshire/7795899.stm

I think:
a) Its a good idea if it helps reduce town center crime, as well as getting money for troupes
b) Its incredibly sad as it really does mean people commit a lot of crimes out of sheer boredom, rather than nessesity.

My guess is that they'd have a few at the site. Fire attracts people and as such he can babysit a larger number of drunks that may or may not have been causing crap elsewhere.

And judging by the fact that they were paid rather than just there ordinarily or busking that there would be sessions rather than just a willy nilly kind of arrangement.
