WELCOME TO (DIS)ABILITY PAGE OF THE 2016 NOTTINGHAM ROBIN HOOD BEER AND CIDER FESTIVAL
All Disabled, hard of hearing, mobility and visually impaired visitors are welcome at the Festival and we do our best to make their enjoyment of the event as trouble-free as possible. Wheelchair access is possible to nearly all areas, even those in the grassed village as most tents are accessible from a direct pathway. Should there be any problems please contact a steward or volunteer and help will be provided.
Much of the festival, including access to the Edwardian bandstand which features the entertainment is on level ground from the entrance point. If assistance is required to reach the large marquee which is situated at the top of a fairly steep hill, please speak to any of the stewards or festival volunteers who will either assist you themselves or call for additional help.
Portable Disabled toilet facilities are available on both levels in the Festival grounds, and those inside the castle itself are available for use during the building's opening hours.
Large-print or Braille versions of the programme can be made available if requested in advance – please contact festival organisers at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the event.
Regrettably there is no parking for disabled visitors on site, as no traffic movement is permitted within the grounds at any time during Festival opening hours. If a disabled customer is dropped off at the gate they should attract the attention of a steward who, if required, will remain with them whilst the person accompanying them parks their vehicle, seating can be provided if requested.
Whilst disabled, hard of hearing, mobility and visually impaired visitors are required to obtain a ticket or pay on entrance any accompanying carers will be admitted free of charge.
