With our previous line-ups featuring incredible acts such as Jess Gylnne, The Specials, James, The Human League, Jake Bugg, Madness, Pet Shop Boys, Calvin Harris, The Darkness and more, we can promise we are preparing another stunning line-up for a day of fun and frolics on the 22nd of July 2017.
Disabled Access Information
Disabled Access & Facilities
Splendour Festival is committed to ensuring disabled customers can enjoy our event. We are working closely with Attitude is Everything to provide an event site which is accessible and are working towards their Bronze Award in accessibility on site.
An Accessible Car Park and Drop Off is located off the Main Driveway to Wollaton Hall, from Lime Tree Avenue. This is available to all blue badge holding festival goers. The parking is on gravel – however, the route from the Driveway to the Disabled Entry Gate is tarmac. Your vehicle must clearly display your blue badge. At the end of the event, the driveway will be busy with pedestrians exiting the event. Please be aware that it may take a while to get out of the site following the end of the event.
