We were fortunate to have the support of a number of generous sponsors in 2016, which allowed the event to happen. We’re looking for anybody who may be able to do so again in 2018 as we move towards long-term financial viability. You can sponsor the event for under £500 or above or email us to discuss.

- Lost Children: All lost children (once found) will be taken to the Information Point. Please report a lost child immediately to a steward or a member of the Medical Welfare Team or Children’s Area.
- Personal Security: Please do not leave valuables in your vehicles. Don’t forget to lock up! Watch over the tents of your friends and neighbors as well as your own! Off Grid is a safe, friendly environment, but it pays to remain aware – We think of this as community self-responsibility!
- First Aid and Welfare: The First Aid facilities are marked on the site map, but are fairly basic. In the case of a more serious condition please speak immediately to the nearest steward or security member. They will call for First Aid immediately. Welfare facilities are marked on the map. They are there for the benefit of all, please do not hesitate to visit them for counseling, comfort or just a hot cup of tea.
- Recycling: All attendees of the event are encouraged to recycle their waste where possible. Please take all recyclable waste from your campsite to the nearest bin collection point, rather than leaving where it is (better yet, take it home!)
