Please Note: The Downs is on a green-field site (Durdham) Downs, Clifton, with limited tarmac paths on the peripheral entrances and exits. While there are some sheltered areas (some stalls and marquees), it is mainly an openair event. Ground conditions are therefore weather dependant (if we experience extreme weather the ground may become muddy), therefore mobility across the site may become compromised. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.
There will be induction loops at the Main Accessibility Wristband Exchange.
British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreters
Due to the amount of time required to book performance interpreters for our shows, anyone wishing to have the BSL service needs to contact the accessibility team at least three months prior to the event to ensure there is enough time to put the appropriate people in place. Please contact email@example.com for enquiries.
We welcome assistance dogs on the site. There will be an area provide for toileting and drinking.
