Disabled Access Information
In order to limit numbers of non-disabled persons camping and parking in the disabled area, specific rules apply to acquiring disabled tickets, disabled carers’ tickets and to disabled persons’ guests in that area. Parties are restricted to four and only one car per party.
Is there disabled camping and parking?
Yes, Blue Badge disabled campers with mobility issues only can camp and/or park in the Disabled Camping & Parking Area. Disabled persons without mobility issues should park in the appropriate area for where they want to camp - parking passes available here: https://www.skiddle.com/pages/bellapasses.php
I’m disabled – what do I do about tickets and how does my carer get one?
IF YOU ARE NOT A BLUE BADGE HOLDER:
You should buy your ticket in the normal way through our tickets page and select the parking pass suited to the area where you want to camp. For your free carer’s ticket, you should then apply to Mary Ferguson with evidence of disablement (ie photocopy/scan of DLA letter front page)
IF YOU ARE A BLUE BADGE HOLDER:
You should buy your ticket as normal via our tickets page and then apply for your free carer ticket with evidence of being a Blue Badge holder to Mary Ferguson (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Assuming you qualify, Mary will also issue you with your Disabled Camping & Parking area passes and your Disabled Vehicle pass. She will also give you a link where you can download your Orange windscreen hanger (which does not allow access on its own).
How do I take a campervan/ caravan to the disabled camping area?
You need to have tickets to this area and to have qualified for these as a blue badge holder. To get a campervan/caravan ticket for the disabled camping area and an electrical hook-up if you require one, you should apply for these through Mary. Do not buy these tickets through the normal tickets page.
Where do I park as a blue badge disabled day visitor?
If you have a Disabled Camping and Parking area pass and Disabled Vehicle pass, you can day park in theDisabled Parking & Camping area. It would be helpful if you could let Mary know in advance if you plan to day park so that we have an idea of numbers.
Are all areas of the festival accessible by wheel chair?
Yes, and there are special disabled viewing areas in many of the arenas; however this is an outdoor event and conditions could become muddy and slippery.
