Home' Woodford Folk Festival : Programme 2009-10 Contents disability access
The festival offers daytime disability parking facilities for
all our day visitors as well as disability camping facilities
for those staying overnight or longer. You will need to
download the Disability Camping form and/or the Disability
Parking form to register before coming on site. This way we
can best cater for your needs.
In addition, the Woodford Folk Festival welcomes people
with disabilities and we are constantly working on ways to
improve the site and the experience for all, but we do need
to advise that the festival site and location does offer some
challenges for those with mobility problems. The event is
held on a rural property (an old dairy farm) and the terrain
is often uneven and/or sloping. The pathways are either
dirt or gravelled and during peak periods of the festival
the pathways can become very crowded and diffcult
to negotiate for people in wheelchairs or with mobility
problems. The disability amenity blocks provided are clean
and sturdy, but basic, and the festival site is large (the
festival entertainment precinct area alone is on 50 acres).
During the day, the weather conditions can be extremely
hot, and on some evenings, quite cool.
Day Visitors – We have a designated disability parking area
in the main day car park for day visitors. It is located close
to the walkway to the festival entrance. This day parking
area is automatically available for any vehicle bearing
a standard disability sticker – just follow the Disability
Parking signs once you enter the festival day car park. We
are aware that some disabilities are of a more temporary
nature and if you don’t have an offcial sticker and need
to use the designated day parking disability area, we
invite you to let us know when you arrive. Just go to the
SOLUTIONS lane in the DAY ticketing admissions tent and
advise that you need a disability car park form for display
in your vehicle.
If your mobility is particularly limited, we have a small
number of spaces available closer to the entertainment
precinct area. These spaces must be pre-booked using the
online Disability Parking form which needs to be submitted
to the festival offce prior to the event and your arrival.
Camping –The festival has a designated disability camping
area situated close to the entertainment precinct entrance
and available for both overnight and season campers with
disabilities. A small number of these camping sites have
access to power (for life support equipment only) and all
have access to a disability toilet and shower facilities.
These camping sites are limited and must be pre-booked
using the online Disability Camping form which needs to be
submitted to the festival offce prior to the event and your
Inside the Festival – Disability access toilets can be found
in both the central Festival opposite The Empire venue and
in the disability camping area.
If you feel that you would beneft from the support of a
carer while you are at the festival, it may be possible for
the carer to receive a complementary ticket. Such tickets
are allocated on an individual needs basis. If you are
interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fire Event Bus – On the evening of the Fire Event (1st
Jan), one of the shuttle buses will transport patrons with
disabilities who fnd it diffcult to make the walk to the
Amphitheater. Once you are on site, please book your
place with the Camp Manager (located near disability
camping area, behind the General Store). Please note that
this vehicle is a standard small bus.
Please use the online booking forms to ensure your dis-
ability parking and/or camping space is secured, and, if
you need further assistance or information about disability
camping, parking or access at the Woodford Folk Festival
please email: email@example.com
