Disabled Access Information


There is a disabled viewing platform in the main arena to allow for easy viewing of the Ronnie James Dio Stage, we operate a one plus one policy ( Disabled customer + their Carer ). There are disabled toilets in the arena.



The disabled campsite is situated right next door to the main arena for ease of access. Disabled toilets and showers are provided in the disabled campsite. There is a power charging point for wheel chair users. There is also a campsite information hub should you have any questions our staff will do their best to assist you.



If you are camping in the disabled customer campsite, cars can be parked next to tents if required, although we cannot offer this to everyone as we are limited on space. For those not wishing to camp but come and go in their car each day, there will be disabled parking close by.



If you wish to bring your campervan into the disabled campsite you will need to pay for a campervan ticket separately. Anyone who turns up on the day without a campervan ticket will be charged accordingly and/or may not be permitted onto the disabled customer campsite.

Although the festival ground is very flat, please bare in mind it is a greenfield site, therefore if we do have inclement weather there could be a few areas around the site not suited for wheelchairs. Stewards are on hand at all times should you need assistance.

Please do not turn up on the day expecting access to the disabled campsite and/or disabled car parking unless you have registered in advance as we cannot guarantee there will be space to accommodate.
