Standon Calling has a zero tolerance policy to drugs including: “legal” highs / herbal highs / research chemicals / NPS / poppers / nitrous oxide “laughing gas” and the misuse of prescription drugs.
We have searches on arrival to the festival, trying to enter the festival with drugs will result in refusal of entry, eviction or prosecution.
We provide a drug amnesty should you wish to safely and legally dispose of any prohibited items before you enter the Main Gate.
As well as having our own security teams, we work closely with the local and national police to control drugs entering the site.
We work to ensure the safety of all customers during their time at Standon Calling. This work includes providing medical and welfare staff specialising in drug harm reduction, working with national intelligence to monitor trends and dangers, working alongside the police as a part of our planning and operational running and working with organisations such as Festival Safe to provide information to customers on harm reduction and safety measures.
If you have any drug related issues onsite, please speak to any of our Stewards and Security team or head to our Welfare or First Aid Tents.
