Children Under 5

Content may not be suitable for under 5s.

If you are having to bring an under 5 to this event please include an Under 5's Notification Ticket in your 'purchase' to alert us to this. These tickets cannot be used without at least 1 Child ticket.

Should an accompanying adult's supervising attendance  have to include bringing an under 5 we understand, and while they can view the performance they must remain in direct supervision by an accompanying adult at all times. It may be necessary for them to be excluded / removed from some parts of the event, especially if they find it distressing and cause disruption.  (Depending on the age and maturity of your participating child/ren it may be wise to have a second adult available to supervise them away from the event).

Children over 12

Though we have designed this event for the recommended age range above, we understand there may be children older than 12 who could participate, (or may have to accompany their parents attending).  They are welcome to be included.

If they are accompanying the party as a necessity for other reasons, but not as a non-participant, they will not need a ticket, but please notify us on the day for safety purposes.

If they are under 18 they cannot be counted as a responsible adult-in-supervison, and therefore a full adult will also need to be attending.

Adult Supervision

We require at least 1 adult to accompany your party, and no more than 2 overall (for space reasons)

We ask for a Common Sense Approach to supervising your children. The Volunteer performers and event staff are not responsible for the behaviour, disapline or parental control of attendees, though may have to intervine if nessary for reasons of safety and instruction, and to avoid disruption to the performance. Friends of Victoria Square volunteers and event staff are not there to directly supervise them or act as loco parentis during the event.

Can an adult from another party help supervise my children, or can I send them with a friend rather than parent/guardian?

Yes, so long as they're someone you know who is able to keep your children properly supervised. It is entirely up to you to agree on any arrangements. Please make sure your children know of this arrangement, as well as inform any event staff should this occur during the event if it involves leaving them in that person's care.

Party Size

While we have not set a minimum ratio of adults to children, we advise you consider what is best suited for supervising the children you bring.

Why we are ticketing this way?

Aside from indicating overall event attendance numbers this will also help us to plan our supervision around the trail and safety requirements accordingly. Being aware of who is in attendance will assist with our preparation for this event, as well as stewarding and safety on the day.
