We are working hard as a newer festival in a very old town to make venues accessible to all people. There are challenges.
Our Accessibility Coordinator Alison is here to make navigating the festival easier.
Please contact her here firstname.lastname@example.org . She will be happy to create a plan with you so that you can choose your own festival adventure!
