For more information about this, please select the specific festival in the Festivals area here, as each festivals policy on bringing children is different, however Oxfam's general policy on bringing children to festivals is:
- You must check the individual festival website to see if your child needs a ticket and obtain this yourself if necessary (ages of adult and child tickets vary from festival to festival).
- Each adult volunteer can bring two children under the age of 13, as long as you can arrange for childcare whilst you are on shift.
- In addition, each adult volunteer may bring up to two children between the ages of 13-18 to camp in the volunteers' area if they have purchased a festival ticket.
There is a form to complete, as part of the application process, which is linked within the festival you are applying for on Stage 1 of the festival application. Any children that are brought to site must have a legal guardian on site. If you wish to bring your child(ren), the legal guardian onsite will need to be allocated on opposite shifts to yourself.
Please note that it is not possible for two people to share one set of shifts. If two stewards bring a child, you must both be prepared to complete all of your shifts on opposite shift patterns.
