Map update – Accessibility Info

  • There are now “wheelchair symbols” on the markers for Accessible Venues
  • There are also map “layers” for just the accessible venues.
  • De-selecting the “All Venues” layers will show only accessible venues.

Confessions of Festival Web Monkey:

“I accidentally linked to my private, editing view of the Festival Google Map instead of the Public View!”

This has now been corrected in Festival website Pages and Posts (please reinstate my supply of bananas, Steve Willis!)

Venue Accessibility?

Venue Accessibility Info

There is a new “Accessibility” Page on the Festival website – but not much information on it as yet.

These venues have access information on their websites:

Crowdsourcing accessibility info

The venues below have not published accessibility information.

Can you help us to give performers and visitors more info?

  • Please tick Venues that you would rate as “Accessible”
  • Let us know if you have any more accessibility information about these venues:
    • you can leave a Public Comment right after this post
    • or use the Contact Form below to send us a Private Message.

We are trusting you not to vote on a venue more than once!

Attitude is Everything

The website “Attitude is Everything(improving deaf and disabled people’s access to live music) has some good tips on Accessibility Information that people find useful.


If you are a venue with Accessibility Info that you would like us to add to the website – please get in touch!

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Accessibility Poll

  • This is a totally unscientific survey with no “Accessibility Criteria” so the results should be viewed with caution.
  • They might help you to shortlist venues to contact for more information.
