We think accessibility at WOMAD is very important. Please find a useful list of FAQ’s below, and please contact us if you don’t find what you are looking for.
Large print programmes are available to use at the Customer Care Centre. The British Sign Language Interpreters sign at selected larger performances. They are available free of charge for bookings of workshops and stage signings on a first come first serve basis at the Customer Care Centre.
There is a disabled camping area, but spaces are limited. To guarantee a camping space please pre-book on the disabled registration form here.
Disabled toilets and showers are available throughout the festival arena, in the disabled camping area, and at Festival Medical Services.
Festival Medical Services can store medicines that need to be refrigerated. Please check the festival map here.
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.
There are 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 for wheelchair users and those who have difficulty standing for long periods. These wristbands are available from the stewards at the disabled camping area.
We welcome all registered assistance dogs including guide dogs.
