The folk festival is in the County of Kent (not Kent County on the other side of the pond!)and the risk assessment is required as a condition of some funding that is on offer. Thanks everyone for the various links to H&S information which I shall be studying this weekend - well it is due to pour down in the south so I don't mind sitting over a hot computer for a few hours. I also don't mind the humourous comments 'cos at the end of the day, where would we be if we couldn't have a bit of a laugh on Mudcat?
ced2 - I'll PM you from my home computer to take up your kind offer of assistance
