We are excited to be working with Attitude Is Everything to improve accessibility for deaf and disabled customers at our festival.
Callum Hogg, from All In Access, is coordinating our access provision again for 2018. If you have any questions, comments or concerns which aren’t answered below, please do get in touch with him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Access to site
Our festival is held at Ramsbottom Cricket Club and is predominantly an outdoor event, with some marquee and clubhouse stages.
There is a single-track road which leads to the Box Office and Wristband Exchange. From Wristband Exchange there is level access to the festival site. There are a number of pathways around the site and most of the activity takes place on the cricket ground grass. The grass is kept very short and the ground is firm and flat.
Access requirements and free personal assistant tickets
To make us aware of your access requirements, apply for a free personal assistant ticket or to book a parking space, please complete our Access Requirement Form.
The main stage has a ramped 4m x 2.5m viewing platform, which will be stewarded at all times.
There are accessible toilets on site, situated a short distance from the main stage. Toilets are clearly marked on the sitemap in the festival programme.
Assistance Dogs are welcome on site and an area for drinking and toileting is provided.
There will be general warning signs around the main stage area should strobe lighting be used. However, there will not be warning directly before a period of strobe lighting from the bands and acts.
ShowMed Medics will be on hand throughout the festival. In the event of a medical emergency, please alert stewards or security staff, who will advise the medics of your location.
There is no customer parking on site but we have reserved a limited number of spaces for Blue Badge holders only. This needs to be booked in advance via our Access Requirement Form. Taxis are permitted to drop off directly at the main entrance, where you will find Box Office and Wristband Exchange.
