Accessible Camping:

When purchasing your tickets, you will need to choose the ‘Weekend with Camping’ option if you would like to camp in the Accessible Campsite.  Please do NOT purchase ‘Quieter Camping’ tickets as these only apply to the general campsites.

 

If you would like to bring a Campervan, Caravan or Trailer Tent into the Accessible Campsite, you will need to purchase a Campervan Pass. Space is limited so early booking advisable.

 

Also due to limited space in the Accessible Campsite we ask that each deaf or disabled customer, wherever possible, have a maximum of 3 other people in their party camping with them (this includes your Personal Assistant, if applicable).

 

If you have a larger party of people with you, please contact us directly on info@cornburyfestival.com to let us know the numbers before Friday 14th June 2019.

 

Our Accessible Campsite has a number of Accessible Toilets and Showers as well as Standard Toilets and Showers for friends and family.

 

Most of our Glamping Operators can provide their services for you in the Accessible Campsite. Contact them directly for any further advise. If you need further help then contact us on info@cornburyfestival.com.

 

If you require access to the Accessible Campsite, please apply via the Accessible Facilities Application Form.

 

Accessible Parking:

The Accessible Car Park will be positioned as close to the Festival Arena as possible. Please be aware that the route to the Arena from the Car Park will be across grass.  If you require assistance getting from the Car Park to the Arena, please ask one of our Stewards and they will be happy to help you.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

The Accessible Car Park is for Day Ticket Holders and those Camping in the Accessible Campsite.  If you are Camping in one of the Main Campsites, you will not need access to the Accessible Car Park as you will be using a different entrance and your car will be parked closer to where you are camping.

 

If you require access to the Accessible Car Park, please apply via the Accessible Facilities Application Form.

 

Viewing Platform:

There will be a Viewing Platform in the Main Arena next to the Front of House Tower for viewing of the Pleasant Valley Stage. If you require access to the Viewing Platform and the Accessible Toilet located next to it, please apply via the Accessible Facilities Application Form. We will arrange relevant Passes for you and your Personal Assistant (Companion/Family Member/Friend).
