Disabled access toilets are available on both sites, and the festivals are predominantly on flat grassland. A disabled drop off point is available next to the main event site. For this, please follow the signs for the production entrance located on Old Bury Road near the traffic lights.
We aim to provide a festival environment that is welcoming and inclusive of all abilities, including hidden disabilities. If you have any questions or suggestions for the festival team, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dogs are very welcome! We just ask for them to be kept on a lead and any mess to be cleaned up, as well as being mindful of other attendees and their pets.
