Dear Noisily Family,
With just 3 weeks to the day till we open the gates to Coney Woods, we want to share some essential information with you about the leanest and greenest ways you can make tracks to Noisily Festival of Music & Arts for our 8th birthday party this July.
CAR PARK CARBON TAX & PLANNED RAILWAY CLOSURES
Carbon Tax Reminder
For those of you travelling by car to the festival, please note that any vehicle with 2 or fewer people in it will be charged a mandatory £10 CARBON TAX at the gate. This will go towards our Looking After the Woods Initiative and help with our environmental efforts to offset and reverse carbon emissions that your vehicles produce en route to the festival.
For those of you with 3 or more people parking will be free, and if you’re struggling to find bums to fill your seats, look no further than our friends at Go Car Share, where you can advertise your ride, or your bum for that matter, and make some friends in the process!
Travelling by train is a very popular way of getting to the festival, and certainly one of the greenest. Taxi’s cost £20 from Market Harborough station to site with Murphy’s Taxi’s, so if 4 of you get in one taxi that is only £5 each. We strongly recommend advanced ticket booking on > https://www.nationalrail.co.uk – its cheaper to book 2x singles from major cities like London or Manchester as it works out much cheaper than a return.
***Planned Engineering Works***
Please note there are engineering works from Market Harborough Station on the Sunday in both directions. There is a bus replacement service via Kettering (where you catch the train) but this takes considerably more time to get to London than normal which extends the journey to 1 hour 48 mins. To Manchester the journey is 3 hours + and requires several changes and bus replacement services so it might be better to wait until Monday morning.
For those coming by bus National Express run buses from London, Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester to Leicester. You can then grab a cab from the Leicester bus station to the Noisily Festival site. Book here > https://www.nationalexpress.com
N.B. There are NO busses direct to site.
Noisily encourages you to ride your bike and we have added a wonderful bike park in the Mind Body Soul area to keep them safe throughout the weekend. Details of where to go when you arrive and where the bike park is will be in the handbook sent out with tickets, and our friendly team at the Mind Body Soul reception can point you in the right direction if you get lost on the way.
CAMPERVAN TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT, THERE WILL BE NO OPTION TO PURCHASE ON THE GATE, AND YOU CANNOT PARK IN THE CAR PARK. Please don’t turn up without a ticket as there will be no wiggle room on this.
See you in the woods!
The Noisily Team xxx
