Challenges of Green Field sites;
Although typically Green field sites such as Noisily’s with its very uneven terrain, present particular challenges to supply facilities for any audience member with access or disability assistance needs. We want to make our event accessible to everyone and Noisily Festival will therefore aim to to take all reasonably practicable measures to ensure disabled festival goers are catered for;
Accessible Camping Applications
Applications for the accessible campsite are now open and we will deal with each one on an individual basis as and when you apply.
In 2019 they will be open from when tickets go on sale and will close in April, this time frame allows us enough time to plan for for your arrival. We will accept applications after this but priority will be given to those who apply before the closing date.
The Selection Process and Who Gets Priority To The Accessible Campsite
Although the campsite is adequately sized we are somewhat limited on space for flat, accessible camping spots and although we do want to help everyone with mobility or medical issues get to the event, we have give priority to those in the most need. These people are prioritised under Equality act 2010, i.e. A person who is classified as being permanently disabled and has mobility related issues that would affect them from being able to stay in the normal campsite, Usually you automatically qualify for accessible camping if you have a blue badge.
If you don’t have a blue badge and think you qualify, we can still accept your application and review it individually.
We can also take applications from people who have temporary mobility issues but we cannot review and approve your application to go in to the accessible campsite until after applications have closed; if your application is not for the accessible campsite, it will be looked at and reviewed as and when you apply.
Personal Assistant Ticket Applications
If you are registered disabled and you need your personal assistant or carer to attend, you can apply for a free Personal Assistant (PA) ticket.
Personal Assistant Ticket Applications Selection Process
You automatically qualify for a free “PA ticket” if you can provide one of the following pieces of documentation;
- Front page of DLA letter with PIP letter
- Front page of Attendance Allowance letter
- Evidence of being registered as severely sight impaired (blind)
- Recognised Assistance Dog ID card
- Valid Access Card showing you require a +1 to accompany you
If for any reason you cannot provide one of these, but you cannot attend without an assistant, we still welcome your application, we will assess your request t on an individual basis.
Do you need accessible camping or could you camp in the Public Camping or Live in Vehicle field
The Noisily Site is spread over 3 main areas, the arena runs through a wooded valley. The public campsite is at the top of the highest side of this valley with the MBS placed in the middle of it. You access the area by going through the MBS, into the woods and then down a set of large steps which winds through the woods, down to the arena
Using the public campsite; If you wish to use the public campsite as you feel it would be accessible to you; you are more than welcome to. The Public campsite itself, is on a low incline hill and would be difficult to access on foot or in a wheelchair if you had any mobility issues but If you had an off road mobility scooter or wheelchair that can be used on the grass it may be possible to get between the arena and campsite unassisted. We would however possibly have to arrange transport for you from the edge of the campsite to the arena. Upon your arrival, you are more than welcome to look and let us know if you decide to move there.
Is the Live In vehicle field accessible?
The live in Vehicle field is at the top of the site, adjacent to the car park, it is on flat ground and is accessible form the road next to the box office.
If you have any access requirements, you can apply for a space in our accessible Campsite (AC)
What is the campsite like and what facilities does it have?
The Accessible campsite Is located on the same footpath that cuts through the centre of the area, so it’s on the same level; It’s just outside the area towards our production village. The road is “hard Standing” and makes the arena accessible by wheelchair for mobility scooters. It’s about a 4 minute walk from the area to the accessible camping.
Due to its location behind the production village it’s also a relatively quiet camping spot and you are nearby the team should you need anything.
You will be given an accessibility campsite wristband to enable you to come through production to the campsite.
We do not typically supply power to this area for leisure use. If there is a medical need for a power connection to be installed, we will look at each request individually.
We have an accessible toilet In the access campsite and on in the arena
Showers will be in the main staff camping, most accessible to the accessible camping We have access to Accessible units and should there be a need for one we will do our best to accommodate the request. We will update the information in this section as soon as we can.
