Wilderness Festival


Wilderness is a four-day festival held in the beautiful grounds of Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire. Wilderness Festival welcomes deaf and disabled guests and is working harder than ever to make the show as accessible as possible for everyone. This Accessibility Campsite is exclusively for deaf and disabled guests. It is the closest to the arena with a dedicated blue-badge parking area which is free of charge and approximately 50m from the Accessibility check-in point over a green-field site. The campsite benefits from a hard road entrance making wheelchair access easier.

although there may be small queues at the bars and food stands at busy times.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
Viewing platform at Main Stage (unsheltered).
Wheelchair-accessible toilets at viewing platform and Medic tent (other wheelchair-accessible toilets are located in each of the main toilet blocks throughout the arena).
Powerchair charging point located at the viewing platform and accessibility campsite. Wilderness is on a large green-field site with very few hard-standing paths. While there are some sheltered areas (marquees) it is mainly an open-air event. Weather and ground conditions may be variable and in times of extreme weather, mobility on the site may become very difficult. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.

The route from the registered blue-badge parking area/pick-up/drop-off point to the Main Arena is approximately 500m over a gravel pathway and green-field site. The Accessibility campsite is approximately 150m from the Accessible parking/pick-up/drop-off point over a green-field site.

Access To Toilets

Access To Toilets
We provide at least one wheelchair-accessible toilet at each main toilet block in the arena, one at the main stage viewing platform and one at the Welfare tent. There will also be wheelchair-accessible toilets in the Accessibility campsite. These will be ‘festival style’ portable units, and most will have Radar locks fitted for your benefit. Wheelchair accessible unisex showers and toilets are available in the accessibility campsite, boutique
campsite and meadow campsite, further accessible toilets are available next to the viewing platform
and at every toilet block in the main arena, accessibility wristbands are given to those guests who
need to use these facilities. There are no accessible toilets in the Valley. The toilets are operated by
radar key, which are available to hire if you do not have your own.

Accessing Visual Information

Accessing Visual Information
Due to the small scale of the festival, performances are not screened at Wilderness. In the smaller
tents and on the smaller stages, guests need to find a viewing space in the crowd, this may vary
depending on crowd size.

Accessing Audible Information

Accessing Audible Information
There is an induction loop available at the Accessibility check-in point, the location of this will be made clear in the access info. BSL interpretation is available for the headline acts on the main stage. Due to the amount of
content and talks etc at Wilderness, we take suggestions from deaf patrons on what they would like
interpreted and try to accommodate their wishes. We hope to have a static Interpreter Stall where
our deaf patrons can come and choose what they want to see. There may also be the possibility to
have a roaming service. Please send all suggestions to: accessibility@mamaco.com

Other Notes
We are proud to work with Festival Spirit, a life-changing charity that provide the full festival
experience to those who would not normally be able to enjoy it due to life-limiting illness or
disability. They will have a marquee in Accessible Camping where they will be stationed for
throughout the festival with their guests.
