The events are zero tolerant to anti-social behaviour. To enforce this policy:

  • Staff challenge inappropriate language and behaviour
  • Police Community Support Officers and/or Police Officers are present

Zero events finish at 11:00pm and our aim is for young people to return home, not to leave groups wandering the streets.

  • Young people will be challenged if they wish to leave early
  • Parents may be contacted to confirm consent for their child to leave
  • Staff will ask young people to identify their lifts
