The Big Noise Music & Arts Festival

The Big Noise Festival is being organised by a dedicated group of volunteers to raise funds for the Big Issue Foundation. Taking place on Saturday 13th June 2015 at The Coronet in London, it is a gathering of artists both visual and live to provide a fantastic day of entertainment, all in aid of a very worthy cause.

Featuring live music, dj's, spoken word, comedy, poetry, theatre, and art it will give you the opportunity to enjoy a great selection of shows, while addressing the issue of homelessness in the UK.

The Big Noise project promotes local and socially conscious organisations, businesses and individuals. All profits from the festival will go to the Big Issue Foundation charity.

The Big Issue Foundation is an independent charity that provides support to Big Issue street vendors, which enables them to rebuild their lives and journey away from homelessness.

The Foundation’s aim is to help homeless people earn a legitimate income, as well as develop their skills and get back in control of their finances.

The Foundation operates around the UK and focuses on four strands that are vital in helping homeless people get back in control of their lives:


It can be as little as 12 months from a significant life event to losing everything and arriving on the streets. Last year alone The Big Issue Foundation worked with over 3000 individuals and in these austere times the need for the Foundation’s services is stronger than ever.

The Big Noise Festival is raising funds for the Big Issue Foundation to help it continue providing support to vendors around the UK.

Get into the spirit of Christmas and join the Adam Street Singers for this festive carol concert in aid of The Big Issue Foundation.

Enjoy the beautiful sounds of the Adam Street Singers as they warm you up with both modern and traditional Christmas carols and songs!

The Adam Street Singers are an innovative contemporary show choir and have been great supporters of The Big Issue Foundation, having performed at both our Big Night Walk and Big Sleep Out earlier this year. This concert will see them take to the stage for an evening of festive songs with other London based choirs.

All proceeds from the night will help support vendors on their journeys away from homelessness so grab your tickets and spread good cheer!

The Big Issue was founded in 1991 as a social enterprise, producing a weekly magazine which is bought for £1.25 and sold for £2.50 by people who are homeless, vulnerably housed or at risk of homelessness. The Big Issue Foundation is the charity founded in 1995 to deal with the more holistic needs of The Big Issue’s vendors. It is a small but national charity and they worked with over 2,200 individuals last year alone.

The mission of The Big Issue Foundation is to connect vendors with the vital support and personal solutions to enable them to rebuild their lives.

The charity relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising events such as Carols by Candlelight to fund its vital services.
