ManorFest endeavours to ensure that everyone attending the festival should feel safe. We have put this policy in place to reinforce that belief and reserve the right to remove anyone from the festival should their behaviour be unacceptable.
Some examples of unacceptable behaviour include harassment of any kind, but are not limited to: gender, sexual orientation, race, colour, age, body size, national origin, religion, appearance, or disability.
To clarify what harassment means, it includes but is not limited to: physical assault, inappropriate physical contact, non-consensual physical contact or attention, offensive verbal comments, non-consensual photography, intimidation both physical or verbal, stalking.
Anyone removed from the festival under the Zero Tolerance Policy terms will not be due a refund.
ManorFest is all about our attendees having a great time and enjoying the music and facilities available. Friends made at festivals can last a lifetime and we really encourage an inclusive atmosphere at our festival.
However, we do ask that you consider your personal behaviour. For example:
Before you approach someone who has caught your attention in the crowd, consider if they are really involved in their music experience and if so, your approach may be rejected so be prepared to walk away.
Do keep a reasonable distance between you and the other person and observe all normal social vibes from that person. If they turn away from you or move away, then they are not interested.
Do not persist in trying to talk to them or standing close to them. Move on.
In a crowd, do remember that other people also want to see that band, so don’t try and force your way through to the front. If there is space, then fine, move forward politely saying ”Excuse me” where appropriate.
Do not shove, push or jostle other people.
Do not push past someone and then stand in front of them blocking their view…..that’s a real festival no no!
Respect other peoples space when dancing…dance with your friends in your own space, be aware of others around you.
Don’t just grab other people and start dancing with them…not everyone wants to! The ‘mosh pit’ can be great fun…but again, mosh with those already involved!
