Security, Health & Safety

Care & safety on the day

We don’t accept any discrimination towards any individual or groups of individuals at our festival.

Irrespective of the background of the individual, be that gender, race, disability, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity. We are proud of the diverse nature of our festival and their customers, if you see or experience anyone undermining this - no matter the severity - please report it immediately to one of our onsite staff.

Festival stewards will be there to help you. Don’t be worried about asking for help in any situation, whether it’s asking for directions or to report something or someone you’re worried about.

Welfare Facilities

The Welfare Facilities will be open throughout the event and are staffed by experienced and supportive people who understand festivals. They can give confidential advice about drugs, alcohol, legal highs and sexual health and offer support if you need someone to talk to for any reason. They offer a monitored rest & recovery area if you've overdone it and they also care for lost children and vulnerable people.

Security

We’ve implemented several new security initiatives at Mfor Festival including:

  • Visible security presence on the perimeter and entrances from the festival on site build, and onwards, the security coordinators will oversee and manage all relevant companies and any operational activity within and surrounding the event.
  • Please note everyone attending the event will be required to pass through various security measures and undergo body and bag searches as a condition of entry. We reserve the right to refuse admittance to any person who refuses to be searched by a steward or other person acting on their behalf. Please be advised that you may have to queue upon entry so we ask that you are patient - these plans are in place to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable event.
  • Large bags are not allowed to be taken into the festival. There is no cloakroom. Small bags are allowed. We appreciate your cooperation and patience when entering the festival.

You may be searched at the entrance to the event. Any item(s), which may reasonably be considered for use as a weapon, or which may cause danger or disruption to any other persons at the event, will be confiscated

Drug use & legal highs

Do not bring illegal drugs or 'legal'/psychoactive substances to the festival. You may be ejected from the event and be handed over to the police.

The use of any gas canisters or nitrous oxide (NOs) is banned across our entire festival site. If found with them, or using them, you will be evicted from the site immediately and potentially banned from other events promoted by Synister Music Events Limited.
