Love Saves the Day is for people of all ages. An adult MUST accompany any person who is under the age of 18. Identification will be required and under-18s will be refused entry without an adult. Each under-18 year old must be accompanied by a responsible adult who is considered to be in a fit state to care for them. We reserve the right to refuse admission if we feel the responsible adult would be unable to account for the number of accompanying under-18s.
We also operate a challenge 25 policy at all of our bars.
Under the terms of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 there are various forms of identification which licensees or their staff can accept as proving your age. From 1st October 2013, these are:
(i) A passport
(ii) A European Union photocard driving licence
(iii) A Ministry of Defence Form 90 (Defence Identity Card)
(iv) A photographic identity card bearing the national Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) hologram
(v) A national identity card issued by a European Union member state (other than the United Kingdom), Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, or
(vi) A Biometric Immigration Document.
So, if you haven’t got a proof of age card please carry one of these other forms of identification. However, given the significant difficulties in replacing either of these types of document should they become lost or mislaid we would recommend that you consider obtaining a proof of age card which can be replaced far more easily if it has to be.
Please remember that there is no automatic right of entry to licensed premises nor is there an automatic right to service of alcohol. Entry is always at the discretion of the licensee for whatever reason he or she decides and the licensee is under no obligation to explain the reason.
For the safety of our customers and staff, security will be conducting stringent searches at the gate. Anyone found to be carrying illicit items will have them confiscated and may be removed from the festival and handed over to the police where necessary.
Please do not attempt to bring any of the following items inside the festival:
• Fireworks, laser pens, or flares
• Alcohol, illicit drugs, or legal highs including nitrous oxides
• Animals (with the exception of guide dogs)
• Selfie sticks
• Anything which could be considered an offensive weapon
Food & Drink
Outside food and drink (including alcohol) is not allowed inside the festival, with the exception of attendees with specific dietary requirements backed up by a doctor’s note. This is a condition of our license and it is something we must enforce in order to secure permission for the event to go ahead. There are, however, plenty of reasonably-priced bars and traders providing refreshments all day long, as well as public water points manned by Frank Water who will be providing free refills of chilled drinking water throughout the festival.
Valuables & Safety
Love Saves The Day 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 Information Tent 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 desparate 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.
Rubbish & Waste
Please use the bins provided to dispose of all your rubbish. Not only do we want to keep the site looking lovely, but also want to avoid harming any of the resident wildlife at Eastville Park. Plenty of bins are provided around the site and these are emptied throughout the day.
Please make sure that you do use the loos provided and not the ground of the park as this can be harmful to local wildlife. There are ample toilet facilities on site that are cleaned and re-stocked throughout the day. We all know that festival loos can be a bit of an ordeal so please do your bit by leaving them as you’d like to find them!
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.
The welfare tent is LOCATED just INSIDE THE MAIN GATE. IF YOU NEED TO GRAB A QUIET 5 MINUTES OR JUST WANT SOMEONE TO TALK TO, THE WELFARE TENT PROVIDES A SAFE AND NON-JUDGEMENTAL SPACE to do this.
Full emergency services include:
• 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 first aid tent. 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.
This is located in the information tent, next to the main gate and it will be open throughout the festival. the cloakroom cost is £2 per item.
If you lose or find something at the festival, please go to our Lost Property Team in the Information Tent.
All lost property from the festival will be kept in the Love Saves The Day office for a month after the event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about your item.
