Safety

First aid

There are trained First Aiders on site during public opening hours (First Aid Point on the Main Lawn near the Loos and Tennis Court).

Most of the site is flat but much of it can become muddy in wet conditions.  Please be aware that you are walking in ancient woodlands where there may be tree roots and other obstacles.  The main lawns and paths are suitable for buggies and wheel chairs but some of the wooded areas are not.  There is a lake on site and parents and carers are reminded that children remain their responsibility at all times.

The site and event have been risk assessed but it is not possible to eliminate all risks.   In the event of extreme weather such as high winds which may pose a fire-risk, or threaten structures or trees, it may become necessary to close the event and evacuate the site.  Should this occur, directions will be given by public address and stewards.   The signal for Fire will be a continual mechanical bell rung on the Main Lawn.

Visitors are asked not to gather under the Great Oak on the main lawn at any time.

There is no public access to the buildings of Holt Hall, the Crew Area, or the Tennis Court.

Real Halloween Only:  please note that there may be live fire braziers and torches on site, and warn or control your children accordingly.  Please take care when using a Jam Jar lantern.  Stay on the path if taking part in the Parade of Lantern Animals, especially if passing fire performers  And of course bear in mind that it also gets dark at the end of the event.

We advise parents/carers to avoid bringing children in shop-bought and plastic costumes at Halloween, as these are classed as toys and may not be as flame retarded/ resistant as clothes are required to be.  For more see here.

No hot drinks are allowed in Workshops.

Please: no under 3’s or buggies on the Parade.  No under 3’s at the Story in the Woods.

Thanks for taking care of yourself and your party.
