Be alert to the potential of unlicensed music events – Aylesbury Vale

The Aylesbury Vale local policing teams are reminding all farmers and landowners to be vigilant to the possibility of unlicensed music events (raves) being organised on their land.

You should be alert to any of the following rave related activity:- 

  • The removal of locks from secure access points
  • Vehicles particularly panel vans or larger, driving off-road
  • Groups of vehicles congregating in rural areas
  • Convoys of vehicles
  • Loud music from remote woodlands

If you spot anyone suspicious who may be conducting early reconnaissance on rural land or even starting to set up an event, please report it to the Thames Valley Police 24-hour non-emergency number 101, as soon as possible.

By receiving early warnings, Thames Valley Police has a much better chance of disrupting the rave and dispersing those responsible for its organisation.

Information about securing land boundaries can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.
