Despite the dastardly efforts of the Criminal Justice Act, free parties are still kicking off every weekend all around the country.

Just because they're free, that doesn't mean you shouldn't respect the place where the party kicks off, or the people who are putting it on.

Here's a few guidelines that should be followed at all free events:
  • Be prepared to be self sufficient. Facilities will be minimal.
  • Park sensibly, keep site roads clear.
  • Be friendly to local residents, ramblers etc. Smile - you're at a free party!
  • Bury your shit!!
  • Don't trash the site - take a bin bag
  • If you go for a wander, close any gates behind you
  • Don't let your dog run wild
  • Respect local wildlife
  • Fires - use dead not live wood (it don't burn in any case)
  • Make a donation - if someone passes a bucket round, don't be a mean git. It costs money to put on a free event.
It's also wise to be prepared just in case your party kicks off with a police bust.
