WOMAD prides itself on accessibility for all. Carers are admitted free to assist people with disabilities. More information on applying for disabled tickets and carer’s tickets will be available from November.
There is a disabled camping area, but spaces are limited. To guarantee a camping space in the disabled camping area please pre-book on the disabled registration form.
Wheelchair battery re-charging will be available at the Disabled camping area. Electric scooter/manual wheelchair hire will be available before and at the festival from Event Mobility.
Access of viewing platforms
There are disabled viewing platforms located in front of the main stages for wheelchair users and people with disabilities. You will need a viewing platform wristband to access. Capacity on the platforms is limited so only one carer can accompany each time.
The viewing platform wristband is a voluntary system for wheelchair users and those who have difficulty standing for long periods. These wristbands are available from the stewards at the disabled camping area.
Disabled toilets are available throughout the festival arena and in the Disabled Camping area. Disabled showers are available in the Disabled camping area and at the British Red Cross.
The Red Cross can store medicines that need to be refrigerated. Please check the festival map closer to the festival for The Red Cross’ cabin location.
Large print information and braille timetables are available to use at the Customer Care Centre. The British Sign Language Interpreters sign selected larger performances and are available free of charge for bookings of workshops and stage signings on a first come first serve basis at the Customer Care Centre.
