code of conduct

We believe that beatboxing is a form of expression that brings people together, and it is our mission to foster a welcoming and inclusive community. We actively promote a culture of respect, acceptance, and diversity.

At the UK Beatbox Championships, our top priority is to create a safe and inclusive space for all attendees, participants, artists, staff, and everyone involved. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the event and the online environment without ever feeling threatened or uncomfortable.

If anyone experiences any form of harassment, discrimination, or inappropriate behaviour, we take it very seriously. Our team is dedicated to addressing and resolving such issues promptly and effectively.

We have implemented a comprehensive code of conduct that applies to all individuals attending or participating in the UK Beatbox Championships. This code of conduct ensures that everyone is aware of the expected behaviour and the consequences for violating these rules.

By creating a safe and inclusive environment, we understand this is key to encouraging more diverse individuals  to participate in the UK Beatbox Championships, knowing that their well-being is our utmost priority.
