Child Protection Policy
Children under 12 must be accompanied by a ticket buying adult at all festival events unless otherwise stated. Children under 2 who do not require a seat do not require a ticket, unless otherwise stated. Bath Festivals maintains a Safeguarding Policy but cannot act in loco parentis or take responsibility for wandering children.
Masterclasses for children
Our Masterclass events offer children the chance to gain a new, creative skill in a small group led by a published author, illustrator or performer. For these events (marked in the brochure with the masterclass badge) you need only buy a ticket for each child joining in with the activities. Adults attend for free should they wish to stay. If not, we ask parents/ guardians to drop children off at the venue, sign them in, and leave a mobile contact number in case of emergencies. Please ensure that you return to collect your child/ children at the specific event end time.
Bath Festivals is keen to promote equality of opportunities for people with disabilities and to take the necessary steps to meet their requirements.
