Safeguarding Policy

IMPORTANT: The Festival’s Child Protection Policy and our new approach to Creating Safer Festivals for Everyone is published on this website, in our hard-copy Syllabus and in our Programme.  This includes the very latest best practice recommendations from the British and International Federation of Festivals, working in partnership with the NSPCC and Children England under the SafeNetwork banner.


Please note that by completing and signing an Entry Form, Parents/Guardians/Carers/Teachers of entrants under 18 (or vulnerable adults of any age) confirm that they give (or have obtained) the necessary consents for the entrants to take part in the Festival.
