Local Residents

Hello and welcome to the Noisily Festival local residents page!

Communicating and engaging with local residents is really important to us, and we want to build a positive relationship with you. We believe it is an essential ingredient to creating a successful and sustainable event, we really cannot do this without your support, and we wouldn’t want to either.

The aim of this web page is to inform you about the measures we have put in place to make the festival a positive experience for all involved, and our commitment to protecting the local environment.

Here you will find information specific to locals, including:

  • Soundcheck times.
  • Event opening times and pre-event timings.
  • Traffic management measures.
  • Details of how to get involved with the event.
  • Details of how to get in touch and opportunities to feedback to us.
  • Locals tickets – Eligibility and how to apply for them.

Before we get on to all that, here are a few words from Will, co-founder of Noisily Festival and a local resident from birth.


Hello, and thank you for your continued interest and support for Noisily Festival of Music and Arts.

I have lived in the area my whole life, and have a love and connection with this beautiful part of England we call home. Whilst many of you may already know me and my family, who have lived in the area for several hundred years.

I would like to thank you for all of your support for the festival. As you know will know from the measures we have communicated over the years, we are really trying our best to cause as little disruption as possible for the local community, whilst curating a very special experience for all those that attend the festival each July.

We have come on leaps and bounds since we first opened our gates 9 years ago, and are now an internationally recognised event with attendees coming from all over the world. We are a multi faceted festival, providing swathes of content in the mediums of art, music and wellness, promoting environmental consciousness, and kindness and compassion amongst our guests. 

We are aiming to be as inclusive as possible with people whole live and run businesses locally, and are improving on this year on year. Wherever possible we use local suppliers and encourage our food traders to do so, and are committed to open and honest dialogue with everyone who lives in the area.

Looking after the natural surroundings is at the forefront of our ethos, and as a result of our efforts over 96% of our waste in 2017, 2018 and 2019 was recycled. We are striving to bring elevate that figure as close to 100% as we continue to hone our Looking After the Woods Initiative. We are very lucky that our guests and crew are all very conscious of this too, and I am proud to say that after every Noisily to date we have left the woodland in a better state than before thanks to our constant year-round maintenance. 

We wish you all the very best, 

Will and the Noisily Team
