Standing and Queueing

There should not be an instance where there are many queues, however if there are the person should find a member of staff which are clearly identifiable. They will be able to assist.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
The entire festival is on level ground so there are no restrictions.

Please note that if the ground is wet it may be difficult for wheelchair users as we don’t use flooring.

We aren’t able to place wheelchair users at the front of the audience and we cannot accommodate ‘viewing platforms’.

Short Distances

Short distance
The festival does not take up a huge space so distance should not be a problem.

It is an open space so you won’t have a problem manoeuvring around the festival or getting food and drink or taking part in the arts and crafts.

Assistance Dogs
