Site Access

The site itself, and all main events, offer wheelchair access. However, if we experience bad weather, the ground itself may be difficult to negotiate. Stewards are there to help you.


Specific disabled facilities include:

  • Accessible toilets 

  • Disabled parking on the main festival site is available in the adjacent car park.

  • Disabled camping, in a prime position, can be provided on application.

  • Assistance dogs are allowed in the main arena. Other dogs are not allowed in the festival arena, but may be brought onto the campsite by those with caravans or motorhomes if kept on a lead at all times.

  • Reserved spaces for wheelchairs in the main marquee.

  • Tickets are available for personal assistants, with the same eligibility as for the CEA card (see here). To apply, please use the postal ticket application form available on the ticket information page here. Include a note about the requirement for a  ticket and a copy of documentation showing your need (as per the CEA evidence requirement).
