Welcome to the 2019 Noisily Festival Performing Arts Applications!!!
For the past five years the performance elements at Noisily have been curated by the indomitable Foolish Rogues, a troupe of weird and wonderful freelance performers with an incredible array of circus skills.
This year we are delighted to welcome back our Performing Arts Director Roo and his incredible team to the Festival. Over the past few years Roo has curated the performance elements throughout site, bringing his band of exceptionally talented humans who bring the woods to life.
Throughout the weekend the woods teem with walkabout performers, fire and aerial shows, and even a tribe of cave folk who seem right at home in modern day.
If you are a performer and would like chance to bring your skills to Noisily, visit our get involved page for applications.
Noisily Festival 2018 was a year that surpassed all others, with aerialists, fire eaters, acrobats, cave people and more. Roo and His team really excelled himself and raised the bar! There wasn’t a moment without wonderment, and as such we’ve got huge expectations for what 2019 will bring.
We are also thrilled to say we have finally been able to boost our budgets, allowing us to expand our performing arts proposition and invite more performers to get involved and become part of our team!
