Drugs

Wild Field Events Ltd. does not condone the use of drugs.

Drugs enforcement laws are as applicable onsite as anywhere else in the UK.

It is illegal to buy, sell or take drugs.

All drugs are potentially dangerous, there are no harmless drugs.

The only way to avoid risks is not to take drugs at all. This also applies to psychoactive substances (formerly known as “legal highs”).

We want our visitors to know above all else, that they can come to the medical team for help if they need it. We encourage attendees to be honest with medics and welfare teams about what they have consumed so that they know how best to help.

This is a family event therefore any person found in possession of what is believed to be an illegal substance, even in a quantity deemed for their own use, will have their details taken, the substance will be confiscated by the onsite security Police will be called immediately, and any substances will be handed over to the appropriate authority. Bringing drugs on site violates our Terms & Conditions and will result in the eviction of the person/persons involved.

Neither anti-social nor illegal behaviour will be tolerated, and participants will leave themselves liable for eviction from the site.
