The welfare of our attendees is really important to us.
If you feel unwell or unsafe for any reason at our events we have a number of people who can help and support you.
If you feel unwell we have St John Ambulance teams in the park, a steward will be able to call someone to assist you or, if you are able to, please go directly to the treatment centres situated by the Main Stage and the Pride Dance Big Top.
We have a dedicated Welfare Team on the park located by the Access Tent. TTK will be providing personnel trained and qualified with safeguarding, drink/drug misuse support, counselling, sexual abuse support and general help to those in distress for whatever reason.
Keep hydrated – You may bring an empty refillable water bottle with you – there are water points around the park. Look out for the blue flags.
Wear Suncream – bottles of suncream are permitted onto the site.
Suncream applications will also be available at the welfare tent on Preston Park.
Stay with your friends. Arrange a meeting point in case you become separated. Ideally make this somewhere quieter – not by the main stage!
Stewards and Security are around the park to help you. They will be wearing yellow hi-viz vests.
There is an information point by the children’s playground and Access Tent. You can report lost or stolen items here.
