Chapter XIII is a safe festival, but we recommend taking some easy steps to maximise your enjoyment of the day. Exercise common sense when it comes to bringing along valuables – if you don’t need it, don’t bring it!

Keep money, mobile phones and cameras on your person at all times. If you suspect you have had something stolen, please check with the Welfare and Information point  to see if it has been handed in before reporting it to the police.

Make yourself aware of the location of the emergency exits, and follow any instructions given to you by security or stewards. In the unlikely event that you witness dangerous or antisocial behaviour move away and alert security if they are not already in the immediate vicinity.


All tented structures have a set capacity that cannot be exceeded by law. If there’s a particular act you are desperate to see then make sure you get down with time to spare. If an arena is full then we suggest finding an alternative stage to enjoy.


Please use the bins provided to dispose of all your rubbish.


Toilets will be located around the site, please check on the site map and familiarise yourself with their locations. 


There is a 12-hour medical centre and other first aid points with fully qualified staff. Please make yourself aware with these locations throughout the day. There are also trained welfare staff who are the to help with personal problems also available for 12-hours.


• Police • Ambulance • Fire Services

If you need any assistance DO NOT call 999 as we have everything needed on site. This could unnecessarily tie up services from a nearby town. There are an ample number of Stewards and Security on site who can be alerted to call upon for any emergency services or assistance necessary.

If you suspect somebody is unwell take him or her to the Medical Centre . If in severe cases they are not moving, please do not attempt to move them and alert a Steward immediately who will call for the exact help needed. If you take any medication regularly remember to bring it with you and make your friends aware of any illness of allergies you may have. Look after yourself and those around you.
