ONSITE DATES

We will be in the park from 1st August – 24th August 2024.

ACCESS TO THE PARK

Outside of our main site, park users will still have access to the rest of the Park, including the sports centre, museum and car park between 1st August and 24th August; however, on show days a one-way system will be implemented in the car park for safety reasons. We will be providing stewards and installing barriers in and near the car park to direct both event-related and regular traffic. We will be using the car park during this time for accessibility ticket holders parking, and taxi and Uber pick up and drop off.

SITE BOUNDARY

Please see our site perimeter and main production route outlined on the map below (the production route from gate E is shared between all events taking place in the park):

Site Boundary
Site Boundary

There will be crossing points on the trackway to facilitate passage for regular park users. These will be managed by stewards who will be instructed accordingly.

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

We work closely with local councils, emergency services, key stakeholders and our contractors with the aim to cause as little disruption as possible to residents and provide safe access to and exit from the site. Traffic routes will be managed by Offsite Traffic Co-ordinators and marshalled by an experienced traffic management company accordingly.

Event attendees are being encouraged to travel by public transport and we have publicised that there is no parking available at the event or in the local area. The planned taxi pickup and drop-off will be located within Gunnersbury Park with the aim of minimising traffic in the local area. We are implementing robust crowd management and dispersal plans to help move customers away from the local area towards public transport hubs as safely, and efficiently as possible. It is expected most attendees will arrive and depart from Acton Town Station.

Whilst ticket holders leave the site, the higher volume of people crossing the A406 to get to Acton Town station will likely result in longer waiting times for traffic at these lights. Details regarding our traffic management plans will be agreed upon with the local authority and released in due course.

TRANSPORT

We anticipate that there will be minimal impact on public transport on event days due to phased arrivals, although it is anticipated that the stations will be slightly busier than normal. The train and tube stations closest to the event will be much busier than normal from approximately 20:30 – 00:00 on the August event dates.

Please consider you may need to allow more time for your journey when travelling at these times.

The following stations are expected to be busier than normal:

  1. Acton Town
  2. Kew Bridge
  3. Ealing Broadway
  4. South Ealing

NOISE

We are working with one of the UK’s leading acoustic consultants, Aria Acoustics, who draft and oversee our noise management plan (NMP) and will be on and offsite to monitor sound levels on event days.

There will be agreed volume levels monitored by our acoustic consultants and approved by the local authority. All concerts have a 10:30 pm music curfew.

If you have any noise-related issues or queries at any point during a show or the build period, you can get in touch via the community hotline or dedicated resident email address.

SOUND CHECKS

Sound checks will take place on each of the event days prior to opening and on the day before the first event day. No sound checks will take place earlier than 10:00 am. More information will be posted on our dedicated resident webpage closer to the event dates.

SECURITY

There will be stewarding directly outside the event and in the surrounding areas, especially during the egress phase. There will be response teams available to respond to any calls made to the community hotline.

LITTER PICKING

We want to be good neighbours and will arrange for additional cleaning in the local area, both within the park and off-site, with additional litter pickers covering a wide range of roads and streets. We will agree on locations for additional toilets to be deployed close to transport hubs.

CONTACT DETAILS

We are very happy to speak to you about any concerns or queries you may have in the coming months and during the event via our Community Liaison Coordinator. You can email us at [email protected].

Please check this page for updates on the events, our plans, and resident ticket ballot.

If you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you,
