Toilets

We provide at least one accessible toilet at each main toilet blocks within the event site.

Accessible Parking

We have a blue-badge parking area, close to the festival entrance. To reserve an accessible parking space, please contact jack.forrest@themet.org.uk. You must display your blue badge in your car upon arrival and throughout.

Accessible parking is on hard standing adjacent to the entrance.

Alternative formats for information

All information about the festival is available as word documents upon request – please email jack.forrest@themet.org.uk.

Medical services

Our first aid team provide comprehensive medical advice and treatment facilities and are very flexible in meeting specific needs. They will be based within the site.

Access around the site

The festival will be based on a green field site, where some, but not all, areas are accessible on pathways. There will be several indoor marquees but the festival is mainly an open-air event, so weather and ground conditions off the paths may be variable.
