It is the responsibility of parents and carers to ensure the safety of the children in their care. This includes making sure that the events and activities accessed by children in their care are age-appropriate and the children behave in a respectful way to any artist or performer.

Failing to comply with the Code of Conduct could result in the immediate exclusion from any BunkFest events or activities (without refund if appropriate)

If you think that the Code of Conduct is not being followed during the build, take down or at any time during the festival or at any festival event you should report your complaint as soon as possible to the Control Office on the festival site where it will be immediately referred to a member of the BunkFest Safeguarding Team.
