WITH just a few days to go, the countdown to Common People 2018 is on and festival organisers have issued a ticketing warning to revellers ahead of the fun family festival.

Organiser, Rob da Bank, confirmed that in a bid to ensure the festival retains its family friendly vibe they will be continuing with their strict parent and guardian policy for any under 18s who attend.

"We don't want hoards of teenagers going around the site," he explains. "We just want to make sure everyone is with a responsible adult."

Ticket holders under the age of 18 can only enter the festival with the person who purchased their ticket, i.e. their parent, legal guardian or nominated guardian who must be appropriately aged – an adult over 21 can accompany a maximum of 4 children aged 0-10, an adult aged 26 or older can accompany a maximum of 4 young persons aged 11-14 and an adult over the age of 30 can accompany a maximum of 4 young persons aged 15-17 into Common People.

And that doesn't mean that under 18s will be allowed to enter the festival on an adult ticket – adult and student tickets can only be used by persons aged 18 or over on the day the festival starts, and proof of age may be required for all ticket types so ensure that ID is carried by anyone attending.

Any under 18 ticket holders attempting to enter the festival without their parent or guardian will be denied entry and nominated guardians must also complete a Non-Legal Guardianship Form (available from Common People) and take this with them to the festival.

Weekend tickets for the two day event are also being issued as one ticket this year, which means people will need to retain their ticket for re-entry on the Sunday.
