Accessibility for people with disabilities

Accessibility varies and we do not have information for all venues.

All the links below are included in venue details on the Festival Programme Page.

The wheelchair symbol is used on the Festival Google Map to indicate accessible venues. There are also map “layers” for just the accessible venues. De-selecting the “All Venues” layers will show only accessible venues.
