The Management Committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting of the Festival. Volunteer helpers will not be taken on unless they are known personally to a Committee member or two trusted people have both confirmed that they are a suitable person. If any doubts are raised about someone, the Trustees will consider using the Protection of Children Act List process to confirm their suitability, but this process will not otherwise be used.

All Committee Members and volunteers wear a conspicuous badge. Volunteers' badges simply indicate that they are Stewards. Committee Members' badges contain additional information. If a problem arises, all those who wear a badge will do their utmost to help. All problems will be taken seriously and will be documented and dated.
