Disabled Access Information
I'm Disabled, what help is there?
There will be as much assistance as Solfest can provide on a case-by-case basis. Solfest can provide electric hookups for powered wheelchairs but please contact the festival in advance to arrange this, or for more information. There is no concession for a disabled person but you may bring a carer free of charge, see below.
For this event, we're using the Skiddle Access Scheme by offering Personal Assistant tickets for customers who need to be accompanied. A Personal Assistant ticket is to be offered for free or discounted when somebody with a disability requires a carer to be in attendance with them.

>Front page of DLA / PIP (no specific rate)
