Glastonbury Festival Reports of Sexual Offences 2014-2017

Question

As part of my research I want to find out how many times people were arrested for sex offences at festivals across the UK.

I am contacting you about sex offences at Glastonbury Festival over the last five years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 I know reported sex offences are a notifiable offence so I assume the data is held, however the numbers will not necessarily mean there were an equivalent number of prosecutions or convictions. Let me know if you need me to be any more specific.

You clarified you wished to receive:

  • The number of reports of sexual offences at Glastonbury Festival,
  • The number of arrests for sexual offences at Glastonbury Festival,
