I've been contacted by someone who is expressing concern about the use of 'Bell Tents" at many of our UK festivals, I am told that they are manufactured in the Netherlands from a company called Obelink.

I am being told that these tents do not meet fire safety standards and as such may present a hazzard - can anybody shed any light on this?

You know it is important to pass fire safety measures fixed by your federal Government cause if you will not meet those standards then there will be a risk of life to those people who has taken tickets for your concert or who paid you for tents during festivals. I think this is the reason.

I think you done a right job because safety standards should be meet without any sacrifice. I appreciate you. You must tell them in future also that they should be beware of safety standards as it is the matter of millions of people.

Yes I a agree with yem1 that there should be a proper fire safety standards in any event after all it is a matter of thousands life. UK govt has set some fire safety standards and laws which you can read here: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-communities-and-local-government/series/fire-safety-law-and-guidance-documents-for-business
