Lockdown Festival welcomes disabled festival goers and takes all reasonable measures to assist with their attendance and enjoyment of the event. At the same time, the festival takes place in the open countryside and disabled guests should be aware that the main arena, car park and surrounding areas are, naturally, fairly uneven and may be difficult to navigate. Lockdown Festival stewards will be available, subject to peak movements, to assist disabled guests in getting in to the main arena.
The main car park is immediately adjacent to the arena entrance and parking stewards will ensure that any registered disabled guests are directed to the disabled parking area, which is very close to the main arena entrance.
Disabled toilets are provided on site.
There is no covered viewing platform at Lockdown Festival, but there is a small area reserved for disabled guests in front of the main stage only. However, if disabled guests find that there are specific problems resulting from their disability, please contact one of the stewards who will be happy to do everything possible to help you.
In our efforts to make Lockdown Festival accessible to everyone, we offer disabled ticket holders, subject to availability, a free ticket for a personal assistant. This offer is open to those who hold a current higher rate of DLA, or other UK government approved supporting evidence of their requirement for a personal assistant. Carer tickets can only be issued against general entry tickets.
IMPORTANT: This offer is only available to those people that would be unable to attend the festival without a full time assistant. Every application is looked at on an individual basis and if anyone is found to be making a fraudulent application, we reserve the right to cancel both the original ticket and personal assistant ticket, before and during the event.
To apply for a personal assistant ticket, please follow the procedure below:
– Buy a standard general admission ticket (must be online)
– Email us proof of purchase (the email from Gigantic) AND a copy of your letter of award for DLA (or equivalent)
Please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15th August 2017. Please ensure that any attachments do not exceed a file size of 1MB, and that you include your full postal address in your email.
PERSONAL ASSISTANT TICKETS WILL BE EMAILED ONE WEEK BEFORE THE EVENT.
