We are liaising closely with the event organisers to minimise disruption for our neighbours. To contact the organisers over issues that occur during the concerts please phone 0203 781 0001 (this number will be live during event set up and event days. During event set up it will be manned 9am - 5pm, Monday - Sunday). Before the event you can contact for more details.


Will the park be open while the event is on?

Yes, all entrances in to and out of the park will remain open. The event is based in the Old Cricket Pitch which is in the Southern area of the park but some other areas of the park will contain infrastructure such as barrier, fencing, lighting and toilets to ensure event related traffic or customers can arrive and depart safely and easily. Approximately 80% of the park will remain open as usual.

Will the park’s other facilities be open while the event is on?

Yes, the Sports Centre, Museum, and car park will all be open as usual however, on 4th July a one-way system will be implemented in the car park for safety reasons. The event organisers will be providing stewards and installing barrier in and near the car park to direct event related traffic and other traffic also using the car park during this time. Your cooperation in following their directions is appreciated.  

Will nearby streets, traffic and parking be affected?

Event attendees are being encouraged to travel by public transport and the event organisers have publicised that there is no parking available at the event or in the local area. No road closures are planned for this event.  There is a dedicated taxi and pick up and drop off operation within Gunnersbury Park to minimise the impact of vehicular traffic on the main road.  This will be signposted, stewarded and communicated to event attendees in advance. The event organisers are implementing robust crowd management and dispersal plans to help move customers away from the area and to public transport hubs as safely, quickly, and quietly as possible. It is expected that the majority of attendees will arrive and depart by Acton Town Station, the high volume of people crossing the A406 to get to Acton Town station might mean that there are longer waits at these traffic lights. Thank you for your patience.

What are the event organisers proposing to do about litter?

The event organisers are implementing a waste management plan which includes regularly collecting and clearing waste from their arena, the other areas in the park being used for the event, and in the surrounding streets being used by their customers who are arriving and departing from nearby transport hubs.  The schedule of collections continues throughout the event, and post event to ensure parks and proximate locations are clear the next day.  Streets covered include Popes Lane from the Sports Centre entrance to A406 crossing (and around this area) and then along Gunnersbury Lane to Acton Town station.  The event organisers are also committed to reducing their impact on the environment.

How will noise be managed?

A comprehensive Noise Management Plan has been developed by the event organisers in consultation with competent acousticians and the Council’s Noise Pollution Officers. Construction and deconstruction should not be audible beyond the boundary of the park outside of 08:00 to 20:00.

The stages have been positioned to minimise the likelihood of performance noise being a nuisance while the concerts are live but if you do experience nuisance noise you can contact the event organisers using the contact details which will be circulated prior to the event.

Upon receiving a complaint about noise, the event organiser will ask for information so they are able to respond. This response might involve sending a member of the event organiser’s Noise Monitoring Team to your location so they can take readings and make adjustments to the event’s amplified sound if necessary.

Visitor Welfare

We’re acutely aware that with climate change we could have exceptional heat during event days. We take our responsibility to every park user seriously, and we will ensure welfare provision on the day.

Why we hold events in Gunnersbury Park

Gunnersbury Estate (2026) CIC was set up for the purpose of opening up the park and museum for education, leisure and recreation for the widest possible audience.

In 2022 we embarked on our biggest programme of events in the park. Tens of thousands of people have visited Gunnersbury: whether bringing the family for a day out with dinosaurs, to listen to award-winning music artists or enjoy immersive cinema, and we’ve loved welcoming new and familiar faces to the park.

 We offer a rich variety of experiences and services to attract the widest possible range of visitors and add value to our community's lives. We welcome thousands of local school students for educational experiences, bring opportunities to local community groups, offer a thriving museum service and continue keeping the park and museum well-maintained and free to access all year. We invest 100% net profit of the income generated from these events back into Gunnersbury, to allow us to continue serving our community. 2022 saw the running cost for the Gunnersbury Estate in excess of £2.3m, and our costs are rising all the time, making this event income ever more vital.
