Accessible Camping Policy

Customers wishing to make use of the accessible campsite may be accompanied by their immediate family. We are unable to offer any space for large groups or other tents that are in your group. Space is limited in the accessible campsite, so spots will be prioritised for customers with additional mobility needs and their immediate families. The campsite is located in an accessible position close to the main stage and arena, due to this we cannot guarantee it will be a quiet area at all times and noise from the stage will be heard.  If you require a quieter area to camp then we would recommend our general campsites.

What’s facilities do you have for those with visual impairments?

This is something we are still working towards, however for 2023 there will be access to a raised viewing area in front of the main stage and we will have large screens either side of the stage.
