They fear the those attending may be put at risk and the surrounding area could be damaged.
“Epping Forest is a unique environment which has many protected trees, plants and animals,” said Martin Newnham, Head Forest Keeper and City of London Constable.
“Our job is to keep the forest safe and ensure that visitors enjoy their time there responsibly, so that we can continue our important conservation work.
“The damage to the forest caused by these illegal raves is often irreparable.
“Last year alone, we spent £400,000 cleaning up litter, and after these events we often find drug paraphernalia, alcohol bottles and diesel spills, as well as damage to protected trees and plants.
“For the future of Epping Forest and for the sake of those who enjoy it and aim to protect it, I would urge revellers not to attend this event.”
