Disability Access


Mobility

The festival site is on fairly level to gently sloping grazing farmland.  There are no steps, and whilst the ground can be uneven in some places, it is suitable for wheelchair access. 

Parking

Disabled Parking for day visitors is near one of our entrances, giving direct access into the main arena.  There is also disabled parking and camping.

Blue Badge holders may park for Free, but passes must be pre-booked by emailing info@nibleyfestival.co.uk.  We will ask you to supply paperwork or an image of your badge.  In exceptional cases (such as injury) and at the festival's discretion, a space in the disabled area may be booked without a Blue Badge but is chargeable at the normal parking rate of £10. Due to limited space we will be unable to accommodate any vehicles that are not pre-booked.

Toilets

There is a disabled portaloo at each toilet block. If you wish to discuss any concerns please give us a ring or email.

Mobiloo - Saturday

We're really pleased to be able to book this facility for 2022. With an electric hoist, adult-sized changing bench, toilet and wash basin, Mobiloo opens up a whole new world for those who require accessible facilities.  It comes with staff who are compassionate, caring, professional and fun; driven to make a difference to the lives of those they support.

***  Due to circumstances out of our control, we are unfortunately only able to provide the Mobiloo on the Saturday (day time).  We appreciate this compromises the weekend for those who rely on it, so if this is the case - Please contact info@nibleyfestival.co.uk - before purchasing your tickets.

Camping

Accessible Tent camping and Live-In-Vehicles (plus size pitch 9m x 6m) are located in 'Quieter Camping' which is the flattest area and gives easy access to the main arena and a disabled toilet. We are unable to allow vehicles into the tent camping areas, but disabled parking is located next to accessible camping. There is no electrical power supply in any of the camping areas. 

Assistance Dogs

Guide and Assistance dogs are welcome at the Festival, if they are working and in harness.  Fresh drinking water is available for them throughout the site. (Kindly ensure that any mess is picked up.) 

Personal Assistant 2-for-1 Pass

We're committed to making Nibley Festival accessible to everyone, which includes issuing a Free Pass to the Personal Assistant of a Disabled person, who would not otherwise be able to attend. The Disabled person must hold a valid paid-for ticket.

To apply for a 2-for-1 Pass please contact info@nibleyfestival.co.uk before 31st May 2022. You will need to provide evidence of one of the following:
– Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility
– Receipt of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
– CredAbility Access Card – + 1 category requirement – www.accesscard.org.uk
– Evidence of being severely sight impaired
– A recognised Assistance Dog ID Card.

The Assistant must be in the company of the disabled person at the wristband exchange and their Pass is valid subject to the attendance of the disabled person. Should the disabled person be unable to attend the festival, the Carer's Pass becomes invalid.

Children with Disabilities

All Children and Teens under 18 are expected to be in the care of at least one adult with a full paid ticket in any case, but if additional support is needed to help care for the young person and enable everyone to have a good time, then please contact us. 

 

Passes are limited and will be issued on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the organisers. We appreciate that each guest may have different requirements, so if you have any questions, or an issue that hasn’t been catered for in these details or want to submit another form of evidence which is not outlined in this page then please get in touch.
