Terms and Conditions
We have all had different responses to the pandemic and accompanying lock-down. Some people will be desperate to get outdoors and hug everything. Others may be worried about personal space and contact. All we ask is that you are sensitive and non-judgmental towards other people’s responses to this personal and societal trauma. Many issues have become very politicised and we would rather avoid these artificial points of friction, our focus is on working together. We have a detailed Covid risk assessment and we are putting in place measures like limited workshop sizes, a hot hand-wash, an outdoor bar and stage with covered seating and a larger fire pit.
Safer Spaces Policy
A Safer Spaces Policy is an agreement that you enter into with all the other people at the event. It clearly states what is acceptable in terms of how we interact with each other.
It is important that we are all clear about what is acceptable and what to do if things go wrong. We have a designated responsible (and trusted by us) person who you can bring your concerns to in confidence at any time during the event, if you feel someone is being out of order or just in general if you feel something is wrong.
1. Don’t be aggressive or manipulative towards others. We have a zero tolerance policy towards any sort of violence.
2. Derogatory language, casual discrimination or any racism are grounds for being asked to leave.
3. Unwanted or inappropriate touching and any other assault are grounds for the police to be called.
Look after yourself and those around you, our staff are on hand at the first aid/welcome point if you have any problems. We have a detailed child protection policy and designated person as well as an event management and safety plan.
We will fully support you if you have any concerns. We are here to ensure everyone’s safe attendance at our event and if a resolution is not available on-site, we have the option of calling on the police or social services. We will not hesitate to do this if we feel there has been criminal wrongdoing.
