Accessible parking must be pre-booked. This is provided within the main car park the surface is grass.

The designated accessible arena entrance is situated 100m 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.  


A raised Accessible Viewing Platform is provided for customers who are wheelchair users, or who have health conditions or other disabilities where they have to remain seated for long periods of time. This is situated 60m from the accessible entrance on a grass surface. This must be pre-booked. 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.

A ground-level, grass Accessible Viewing Area is provided beside the viewing platform for customers who have health conditions or other disabilities and need a less crowded area and access to the accessible toilets. There will not be an unrestricted sight line of the stage in this area, as there will be customers in front of the Ground-level Grass Accessible Viewing Area who are likely to be standing up.  All places in the Ground-level Grass Accessible Viewing Area must be pre-booked. 

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.


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.
