Campsite Safety
Security staff will be patrolling the campsite but please do not leave anything valuable in your tents.

Always follow the instructions and warnings of a security personnel & police.

Totally empty your vehicles. Leave the glove compartment open and conspicuously empty and leave nothing lying on the seats.

Leave valuable items such as jewelry, cameras and watches at home - use a cheap disposable camera instead.  

Safety in numbers - try to camp in a group with your friends, or chat to the people in the tents next to you and look out for each other’s belongings.

When you leave your tent take anything valuable with you, don’t attempt to 'hide’ anything under a pile of belongings.. thieves will rummage through everything quickly and take anything of value.

When you’re sleeping don’t leave your valuables all in the same place.. girls, don’t leave everything in your handbags or you might lose the lot. Split everything up and hide in different places around your tent. 

If you do see a theft taking place please do not intervene, you may end up getting seriously hurt. Please alert a member of the security staff or campsite staff asap. Always go to the cashpoint with a friend, especially when it gets dark. Only bring credit cards that you are going to need/use. There are paths from the campsite through Strawberry Fields, and into the main arena. This means there is no need to walk along the road. For you own safety please stick to the path, it will be well sign posted and lit up at night.
