HuddsFest is a family event. Anyone under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult, parent or guardian.
A sensible ratio of adults age to children under 14 will be required at point of buying tickets and at point of entry. We will allow 2 or 3 youths per adult entry. Any more is not advised and is entirely at the event management’s discretion.
Last entry cut off point will be prior to the 2nd to last act’s performance.
Visitors are to cooperate with and obey instructions or directions given by the event stewards.
If you can’t provide valid identification when asked, you may not be able to gain entry. Refunds are not automatically issued as you have been informed to bring identification. Any refunds are at the Management’s discretion.
All young persons over the age of 18 and appearing to be under 25 must bring photo ID as a condition of entry. This Includes:
An in date photographic driver’s license or provisional license
A valid passport (not a photocopy). Out of date passports will NOT be accepted
Anybody found to be using identification that is not their own will result in both the identification and their event ticket being confiscated. This may also result in prosecution for both the owner of the identification and the individual fraudulently attempting to use it.
On the spot checks will be in operation across the site at all times. Please ensure you keep your identification on you at all times.
7. All ticketholders will exchange their ticket at the Box Office and be issued with a wristband which allows entry. At the point of wristband exchange, ID will be checked for anyone looking to be young, i.e 25 years old or younger.
There are two different colours of wristbands issued:
One colour will be issued to those whose ID shows them to be under 18
The second colour for adults age 18+ who are attending.
This method of ID checks and identifying responsible adults at the point of ticket exchange will ensure that no one under the age of 14 is allowed on site without an adult.
Despite stating age restrictions within the website and via emailed newsletters etc, youth under 14 may still show up at the Box Office/Wristband exchange with no ID or ID showing they are under 14 but with no responsible adult with them. They will be turned away. Their ticket fee may potentially be refunded at the discretion of the Event Manager depending on the circumstances.
\\EVENT CANCELLATION \ BAND CANCELLATION:
If the event is cancelled, a full refund of tickets will be issued via the method they were paid for paypal/card transaction/cash within 7 working days of the event date. In the event of bands withdrawing/unable to perform/cancellation, every effort will be made to replace the band with a similar caliber of act. No refunds will be given for a particular band cancelling as you are booking for the event 'HuddsFest' not individual artists.
