Making a rural green-field event accessible to all can be quite a challenge, but we are doing our best to make the event accessible to as many people as possible.
We have special access routes to all main venues and essential services, but the areas around these are predominantly grass. Electric wheelchairs can tackle most areas without too much hindrance but if it rains it may get muddy and access around the site (other than on the paths) may be very difficult. Once you’re at the event, if you have any concerns please speak to one of our stewards who can advise the best route for you.
The ground can be quite uneven in places.
Accessible lavatories will be positioned around the event. They are clearly marked on the site map and all our stewards will be happy to direct you to the nearest one.
There is a raised viewing platform in the Main Stage arena. Charging points for electric wheelchairs are available here – please note these are outdoors so can be affected by damp conditions - chargers are left at users risk.
Emergency medical support is available from the on site medical team, but please ensure you bring all your own medication with you, and a carer trained in administering it. Regrettably it is not possible for BCDO to safely and securely store medicines at the event, and we recommend that any guests needing to refrigerate or store medicines seek advice from your GP for alternative methods to store medication.
We are unable to supply motability vehicles or wheelchairs, so you will need to bring your own if needed.
We provide a disabled Camping area that is on flat ground and has accessible toilet facilities, as well as close proximity to a wheel chair charging point. This area is located as close as possible to the entrance to the event field.
If a disabled person is in receipt of a disability related benefit, such as Carer’s Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Attendance Allowance or Employment Support Allowance then they are entitled to book one carer ticket along with their own full price ticket. Disabled Carer tickets need to be booked via the website. We will need to see official documentation to show carer status when wristbands are collected onsite, unless submitted to us in advance, (official documentation does not include a letter from a health professional). The documentation must be valid on the date of the event.
We recognise that some people may need to find a space to step away from large crowds and noise. As we are on a parkland site there is space to get away, but if you are noise sensitive please be aware that the area around the main stage can be louder than other areas on site.
If you have any specific special needs, please contact us on email@example.com and we’ll do our very best to help or advise!
