Proof of ID

Visitors may be asked to produce a photographic form of identification when exchanging their tickets for wristbands. This is due to the fact that those 18 and over will be given a different wristband to those under 18. Anyone who is deemed by a Guilfest representative to be 21 or below and not able to prove their age will be given an under 18 wristband and will not therefore be served any alcohol. All visitors may be required to prove their age with the appropriate wristband and/or with photographic ID again to bar staff when purchasing alcohol. Stewards will also be patrolling the festival arena and will report any under age drinkers and/or those who they believe to be under age to their appropriate supervisor and those persons may then be escorted off site. Please note that anyone may be asked for ID, regardless of how old they may be or appear so please come prepared!

Items ordered will be delivered as soon as possible after the 1st June 2010 in accordance with the standard Royal Mail Special Delivery postage.
