Access information for Forest Live, Cannock Chase

We are committed to providing an excellent standard of accessible facilities to all of our customers who require them, due to a disability or health condition. If you have any questions about our access facilities contact us on 0300 068 0400 or email boxoffice@forestryengland.uk

Parking

Accessible parking is available within the main car park. Follow signage or advise a steward who will direct you.  The car park surface is grass.

The designated accessible arena entrance is situated 100m less than 5 minutes from the accessible car park along a grass path.

Customers with access needs due to disability or health condition, should not purchase Cannock Priority Parking, as the accessible parking area is available free of charge and is closer to the accessible arena entrance than the Priority Parking area.  

Arena

A raised accessible viewing platform is available and situated 50m a couple of minutes walk from the accessible entrance on a grass surface.

The platform is located 55m from the stage to the right. The platform has a non-slip surface and is double level, with ramps off the back.

Registered assistance dogs are permitted, but the live sound may disturb the animal. No other dogs are allowed on site.

Lasers and strobe lighting may be used as part of the performance.

Toilets

Accessible toilets are located on the ground to the side of the platform.  There are no accessible toilets outside the arena within reasonable distance, however stewards will allow customers with access needs to use the toilets at the accessible platform before the arena opens, upon request.

Drop off and Pick up

The main drop off and pick up point is 550 m (approx.10 min walk) from the arena. The path is crushed stone and short-mown grass.

Customers being dropped off who have access needs meaning the main drop off point would be unsuitable should follow signs for the accessible parking area and not the drop off/pick up point to ensure they are dropped off as close to the arena as possible.

Customers who have access needs meaning the main pick up point is unsuitable to be collected from at the end of the night should contact Box Office on 0300 068 0400 in advance, to discuss arrangements.
