Hebridean Celtic Festival - Statement on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment

The Hebridean Celtic Festival believes everyone should feel safe during the festival. We will help maintain this by not tolerating harmful behaviours, which may include non-consensual touching or verbal harassment.

If a participant chooses to break these policies they may be removed from the event.

If someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, no matter how minor it may seem, please do not stay silent. You can report it to any Hebridean Celtic Festival member of staff, volunteer or our Safe Space Volunteers. They will follow your lead, and work with you to try to make sure it does not happen again and that you continue to feel safe at our festival.
