• Participants aged 16 years and under must take part alongside a paying adult and be accompanied throughout the event. School and youth groups who take part must have adequate supervision.
• Upon running through the Bubble Stations, all children must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their safety.
• Please wear sensible footwear.
• Everyone is welcome to take part. For those that have a disability, due to the nature of the event and the location there may be some uneven terrain at Chantry Park. Please contact the Hospice prior to booking for more details 01473 723600.
• On no account is alcohol to be brought into the event site or consumed during the event. St Elizabeth Hospice reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone under the influence of alcohol.
• If you are pregnant we advise you not to take part, however you can do so at your own risk. St Elizabeth Hospice is not responsible should an accident occur which could potentially cause harm to mother or child.

7. Clothing and Bubble Dye

• Due to the ingredients used for the dyes in the bubbles, these may stain clothing. It is the participant’s responsibility to come suitably dressed for the event. The event organisers take no responsibility for colour stains on any shoes or clothing. Please attach the rain cover on your pushchair if walking through bubbles.
• The foam mixture is completely natural and safe. The dye is food dye and is water soluble so it’s environmentally friendly too. In fact the creamy foam has the same viscosity as water and does not contain any soap at all
• It may take a couple of washes to remove the dye from your skin however it does not present any harm. Slight stinging in your eyes may occur, however the pH balance is very low. Be cautious when wiping your eyes with your hands if they have frothy suds all over them. We suggest you pack some wet wipes to remove excess foam after you’ve finished in the bubbles, and having some towels to hand in the car for the journey home – or better still a change of clothes!

8. How deep is the foam?

• The bubble stations can be filled to a depth of 4 feet, we recommend that you carry small children, hold the hand of older children and that they wear eye protection – swimming goggles are fine!

9. Changes to the Event

• St Elizabeth Hospice reserves the right to alter the start time and waves at any time.

10. Cancellation

• St Elizabeth Hospice reserves the right to cancel this event at any time. In the event of this happening, St Elizabeth Hospice and Bubble Rush will endeavour to reschedule the event and invite all those already signed up to the revised date.

11. Publicity
