You may be asked to provide additional evidence to support your request. Requests will be judged on a case-by-case basis.
When purchasing your tickets, you will need to choose the ‘Weekend with Camping’ option if you would like to camp in the Accessible Campsite. Please do NOT purchase ‘Quieter camping’ tickets as these only apply to the general campsites.
Due to limited space in the Accessible Campsite the organisers ask that each deaf or disabled customer has a maximum of 3 others camping with them (this includes your Personal Assistant, if applicable). If you wish to camp in a larger group, you are of course free to do so in any of the public campsites.
The Accessible Campsite has a number of accessible toilets and showers as well as standard toilets for friends and family.
There will be 24-hour access to power for wheelchair charging.
Please note that equipment left at this charging point is left at the visitors’ own risk and the Cornbury Music Festival cannot be held responsible for any theft/damage.
If you would like to bring your campervan into the Accessible Campsite, you will need to purchase a Campervan Permit when purchasing your Weekend with Camping tickets once they are on sale.
If you require access to the Accessible Campsite, please either apply via the Personal Assistant Ticket Application Form (if you are applying for a Personal Assistant Ticket), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Accessible Car Park will be positioned as close to the festival arena as possible – however, please be aware that the route to the arena from the car park will be across grass. If you require assistance getting from the car park to the arena, please ask one of the stewards and they will be happy to help you.
You will receive a parking pass for the Accessible Car Park when you receive your Personal Assistant’s ticket.
