Standon Calling is committed to creating a welcoming and safe environment for our audience, artists and staff.
We have signed up to the Association of Independent Festivals‘ Safer Spaces at Festivals charter. We commit to work together to make festivals a safer environment for all and take a zero tolerance policy to all forms of harassment, aggression or abuse of any kind.
If you feel uncomfortable or unsafe in any way, you can head to any of our security staff, bar staff, welfare team or medical team to talk and we will take your lead from there. Our security and welfare team are trained in spotting predatory behaviour and supporting reports of sexual harassment, assault and abuse of any kind.
We will be operating the Ask for Angela scheme across all our bars. If you need support, please Ask for Angela behind the bar and the bar staff will know you need help getting out of a situation. They will take your lead on how you wish to proceed with the situation. We also have a safe space at the back of our welfare tent, where you can go to speak about the experiences away from the festival.
