Disabled Facilities

We have disabled toilets and parking on site and an easily accessible camping area can be arranged (this must be arranged in advance), please email for more information.

Most of the main site is reasonably flat and easily accessible in good weather. In very muddy weather we have found that some people have had problems with some wheelchairs during the worst of the mud over the whole site. We do our best to keep everyone moving, but please do be aware that this is an open-air event in a grassy field and we cannot guarantee the ground conditions.

If you are a carer and in receipt of a Carer's Allowance you may be able to receive a free ticket that corresponds with the ticket of the person you care for. For example, if the person you care for has a weekend ticket, we will provide a free weekend Carer's Ticket for yourself. You need to show official documentation that you are the named carer of a person receiving middle or higher rate DLA and they are aged over 18 years (these tickets are limited and are subject to availability). We will issue a free carers ticket only to the person named as the Carer. You may be asked to show ID at the main gate upon entry. This ticket must be pre-arranged via email. Free Career ticket can only be issued with a full priced Adult Ticket purchased via our ticket sellers and cannot be used in conjunction with any other special offer tickets.

In keeping with most other UK events, we are trying to reduce our carbon (bare)foot print, we encourage car sharing and the use of public transport to reduce carbon emissions, we hope you will support us with this.

For health and safety reasons we have arranged for cars to be parked in a designated area a short walk from the campsite and there will be a small car parking fee.

Although the walk from the car park to the campsite is short, we understand that it can be challenging with large amounts of equipment and/or with children in tow. Therefore we offer a trolley hire service which will be available from just outside the main car park.

Those in Campers, Caravans or Trailer Tents can stay in their vehicles in the camping area for an additional fee - NO CARS ARE ALLOWED IN THE CAMPING AREA AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SLEEP IN YOUR CAR.

Once pitched, we cannot allow movement of Campers/Caravans/Trailer Tents whilst the festival is open due to health and safety regulations. We ask that you do not move your Camper/Caravan/Trailer Tent until Monday morning. The area is strictly limited and you may get your Camper/Caravan/Trailer Tent blocked for the weekend which also restricts movement until the festival site is closed.

Campers/Caravans/Trailer Tents; upon arrival please inform a car parking attendant you have purchased a Camper/Caravan/Trailer Tent Weekend Parking Pass. You will be asked to temporarily park your vehicle and directed to the front gate.
