#BESAFEBESOUND CAMPAIGN - MEDIA TOOLKIT FOR EXTERNAL PARTNERS

Counter Terrorism Policing wants music lovers to #BeSafeBeSound this summer, as it collaborates with the UK music industry to deliver vital safety advice to the public ahead of the festival season.

Launching the new ‘Be Safe, Be Sound’ digital campaign as part of the ‘Summer Security’ initiative, Counter Terrorism Policing has asked UK Music – an industry-funded body representing the collective interests of the British music industry – to use its considerable influence to help reach the hundreds of thousands of music lovers who will be attending live events this summer.

Dementia Friendly Xplorer Session

Xplorer is a fun navigating challenge that gives people a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers.

We have specially adapted this event for Dementia Awareness Week, inviting anyone with dementia and their families/carers a chance to get active.

The activity walk should last around 15-20 minutes but you can take as long as you like.  Come and grab a map from main reception and have a go.
