      πŸ““GROUND RULES βš–οΈ

      • We want people to feel as safe and welcome as possible, so please feel free to message the Shandy Instagram or Facebook page with any queries or concerns.
      • As always, please don't assume any one's gender or pronouns. A fun way to ask is to start by giving someone a compliment, and asking for their name and pronouns.
      • Consent is key – ask before touching and await a clear response; fuck yes or no thank you!
      • The bathrooms will not be gendered - they either have urinals, or don't.
      • Be respectful and considerate – do your bit to make the space safer and more comfortable for others: a party is only as good as the people attending, and we all have a role to play in having the best time ever!
      • Racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, or transphobic behaviour/attitudes will not be tolerated. Please see staff or security if someone is making you uncomfortable, or message the Shandy Facebook page.
      • Last but not least, look out for your friends and other party-goers & stay hydrated!
