Valley Fest is a small festival located on a working organic farm. Most of the activity takes place in the main festival field. There are some pathways available, but much of the site has a grassy and sloping terrain, which can be difficult to traverse, especially in bad weather. All of the venue entries have a flat and accessible entrance.

Valley Fest recognises that some festival-goers require assistance from a carer or personal assistant (PA).

We offer free Carer/PA tickets to those who are assisting someone over the age of 18. However we will offer a free Accessibility ticket to someone under the age of 18 who is attending with a fully paying adult.
The Accessibility persons must receive one of the following:
  • Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility
  • Receipt of Enhanced Rate Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Or Registered Deaf or Blind
    Other requests are discretionary

To apply for a carer/PA ticket, or disabled parking/camping, please complete the online form.

Once you have purchased your ticket, please complete the online form. You are required to enter your purchased ticket reference number (this is detailed on the PDF ticket you will have been emailed) into the online form.

Once your application has been processed we will then link, the Carer/PA or Child Accessibility, ticket with the already purchased ticket.

If you would like an offline version of the form please email meg on accessibility@valleyfest.co.uk.

Please note that if you buy a ticket for your carer/PA, these will not be refunded. If you have any questions please contact Meg on accessibility@valleyfest.co.uk

Carer/PA tickets are linked to the Lead ticket, they are non-transferable and cannot be sold. The carer ticket is provided on the expectation that your carer is willing and able to assist you throughout your festival visit. Free Carer/PA tickets are not allocated to parent/guardians of children under the age of 18.

The general campsite has a reserved accessible camping area – please contact us in advance if you wish to camp here. People who have reserved will also be able to bring their vehicle here and park next to their tent.

Accessible toilets will be available in the campsite and the main arena.
