Site

The Festival takes place in and around the beautiful Larmer Tree Gardens. Much of the gardens are lawns with some gravel and tarmacked paths between different areas. The main entrance and campsites are in fields next to the Gardens. There are no steps, but there are some gentle slopes. We lay hard standing and tracks from the accessible campsite and car park to the Festival Village, but access around the Festival can be challenging in extreme weather.

Layout

The distance from the accessible parking and camping area (open from Thursday at 1pm) to the Festival Village entrance, Wristband Exchange and charging area is about 100m, and to the Main Stage is about 600m. Other campsites are slightly further away. There’s no vehicle movement allowed in the general campsites and cars must be parked in the designated parking area.

Disabled People who are non-registered

Our accessible facilities are primarily for those who are registered disabled (see details above). Whilst short term illnesses, recent injuries and pregnant women do not qualify, wherever possible we will do our best to make sure everyone’s Festival is as enjoyable (and comfortable) as possible. If you can’t provide the evidence listed above, you’ll be asked for alternative information to support your request and we’ll review every application on a case by case and availability basis.

Accessible toilets and showers

There are wheelchair/easy access toilets and showers next to the accessible campsite.  There are also accessible toilets in the Festival Village and near the viewing platform on the Main Lawn.

Viewing platform and chairs

There is an accessible viewing platform on the Main Lawn. Space is limited, and we try to make this available for those in most need – our stewards will be available to help. You don’t need to book to use the viewing platform. We also allow space around the edges of the Main Lawn for chairs.

Please display your vehicle pass on your dashboard, this will help our stewards direct you. All our stewards are available to provide support and information. Just make sure you remember to bring your tickets and vehicle passes with you.

Medical services

The medical area is in close proximity to the accessible campsite and car park. A team of paramedics and first aiders are on site during the Festival. There’s a fridge available for storing medication.

Assistance dogs

Assistance dogs that are registered with an organisation that is a member of Assistance Dogs UK are welcome at the Festival (we’re being specific, because other furry friends are not). Let us know if you need to bring an assistance dog by emailing tickets@larmertreefestival.co.uk.

Strobe lighting

Laser, strobe and other lighting effects may be in use during the Festival. If we know in advance that an artist’s set will contain strobe lighting we’ll try to include a note on their line-up page on the website. At the Festival, a sign will go up at the entrance to the stage or area.

A large-print PDF of access information will be available shortly.
