Health and Safety


The Bridport Food & Beer Festival Organising Committee has taken reasonable precautions to ensure the health and safety of everyone present at the Festival. For these measures to be effective, everyone must take all reasonable precautions to avoid or prevent accidents occurring and must act upon the instructions of all Officials and Stewards.
