Health and Safety

The following is the advice issued by South Wales Police.

Around 30,000 people are expected to visit the four-day festival in Porthcawl and revellers are being urged to make sure they keep their personal belongings safe and to also behave responsibly.

Can you help.

With the Elvis Festival coming up this weekend, large numbers of people are expected to spend their days and evenings at various Elvis events, and taking advantage of the extended trading licences currently in operation at many pubs.

With this in mind South Wales Police are keen to make sure visitors and locals alike remain safe while enjoying the Elvis Festival and Porthcawl's night time economy.

Chief Inspector Mark Lenihan said: “The Elvis Festival has been coming to Porthcawl for some years now and whilst we are keen for people to enjoy themselves, it is also important that festival goers stay safe and protect their personal belongings. Our advice to anyone attending the Elvis Festival at the weekend is keep belongings like mobile phones, wallets and cameras secure and be aware of your surroundings. It is also worth installing your smartphone with a tracking device or app which can help officers locate any stolen phones”.

Chief Inspector Lenihan added: “We would like to remind festival goers that we will be closely monitoring the consumption of alcohol to ensure a pleasant and safe environment for all our visitors, and if you are found acting antisocially due to alcohol there is a very good change you will be arrested”.

“We are keen that those attending the festival enjoy all that Porthcawl has to offer, but we would encourage people to moderate their alcohol consumption, drink responsibly, know their limits and don't let a great night be ruined by overdoing it”.

“We are working very closely with the organisers and local authority partners to ensure everyone going enjoys the event and gets home safely, and to minimise the impact on the local community”.
