Accessible parking is available on site. Follow event signage to Westonbirt Arboretum and then follow directions to accessible parking or advise a steward who will direct you. The car park surface is grass.

The designated accessible arena entrance is situated 20m from the accessible car park along a grass surface.

Arena

Limited wheelchair loan is available. Advance booking is essential, contact visitor services on 0300 067 4861.

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

The platform is located 65m from the stage to the left. The platform has a non-slip surface and is tiered with ramps leading up to it.

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

Laser 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. Additional accessible toilets are located in the Welcome building.

Drop off and Pick up

The main drop off and pick up point is 400m (approx. 10min walk) on a tarmac and crushed stone surface. The footpath to the arena 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 us on 0300 068 0400 in advance, to discuss arrangements
