Disabled Festival Goers
One thing that is much improved on our new site is health and safety, and accessibility. For those hardcore wheelchair users who stuck with Purbeck Folk Festival despite the hills and rough paths, you’re going to find Purbeck Valley Farm as absolute breeze!
We’re still on a working farm, but access is very much easier, with solid access from the camping to the festival arena and solid floors to the barns.
Camping for disabled customers is provided close to the festival music area. There is a designated flat area for disabled people for camping and caravans close to the hub of the festival. It’s the closest we can get! Wheelchair accessible toilets are provided there. There is good access to the music stages and to the bar/food areas.
We have a lot more flat space close to the music arena than on our previous site, but please inform us of your requirements when purchasing tickets. We cannot be sure there will be unbooked space available during the festival in this designated area.
We would like to respond to the needs of disabled customers and we welcome feedback, opinion and guidance.
