Coronavirus: stay safe with our facts, information and practical advice about alcohol and your health

Festival Crew nightlife safety training

Festival Crew nightlife safety training is for festival staff to ensure customer safety and reduce alcohol vulnerability.

Festival Crew is an element of our Nightlife Crew safety scheme. As part of our train the trainer package, Festival Crew is a half-day training for dedicated staff who will engage with festivalgoers, offering them support, and promote a positive and safe environment. Festival Crew members will be able to identify negative situations and resolve them.

Unlike most well-being support currently available at festivals, Festival Crew is mobile and operates a triage system where festivalgoers will be directed to the services they require. We recommend there is a Festival Crew team to per 4000 festivalgoers. The training covers core valuable skills in communication and supporting people who have become vulnerable from drinking alcohol, and is broken down into three key elements:

  • Creating a positive environment
  • Identifying potentially negative situations
  • Supporting people who have become vulnerable

Festival Crew training comes as part of our Nightlife Crew package which also offers Club CrewStreet Crew, Lead Crew and our Support Crew e-learning
