Southampton Weather Forecast

Bouncy castles must NOT be used in very wet or windy weather conditions. The British Standard Health & Safety regulations BS EN14960 state that bouncy castles and inflatables must not be used in wind speeds greater ‚Äčthan force 5 on the Beaufort Scale (approx. 19mph). Force 5 is a fresh breeze (when leaves on small trees begin to sway), whereas force 6 is a strong breeze (when large branches are in motion). See bottom of page for explanation.

If he wind speeds and gusts forecast (We use BBC Weather, Met Office, XC Weather & MetroGroup) are in excess of ‚Äč20mph on the day of your event then we would not be unable to erect our equipment outside in the winds because e take the health and safety of our customers and our staff very seriously at Rascals Castles.

Have you thought about taking your event indoors to the local church hall, community centre or village hall? Take a look at some possible indoor venues here: https://www.rascalscastles.co.uk/pages/indoor-bouncy-castle-southampton-hall-hire#BodyContent
