Accessibility,

Personal Assistant Tickets

We want to ensure that Swingamajig is accessible and open to everyone who wants to attend.  We offer a free PA ticket for your Personal Assistant or carer if you are over 18 and receive or have any of the following:

  • Middle or Higher Rate DLA

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

  • CredAbility Access Card

  • A recognised Assistance Dog ID Card

  • Are registered severely sight impaired  

 

To arrange this prior to the event please email us at festival@swingamajig.co.uk so we can make sure you have all the information you need before the event.

Access

We have several stages at Swingamajig, split between the outdoor grounds and indoor areas.  All the spaces are wheelchair accessible but please be aware there are some steep slopes on the lawn.  When you arrive you will find public info points, and there you will find more info on getting around the site. 
 

Facilities

We have accessible toilets across the site and again the best thing to do is check in with the public info team on arrival.  Unisex toilets can be found within the cafe and most the indoor toilets have a baby change area.    

 

Parking / drop off

Though there is a dedicated carpark at the Botanical Gardens, it does get busy very quickly (though disabled bays do take longer to fill up and we endeavour to only provide parking on site for blue badge holders and staff).  If you do park in this carpark please ensure you type your registration into the computer terminal by reception and keep the receipt as there are parking cameras in operation.  Swingamajig accepts no liability for any parking fines received.
 

Lighting

All of our stages will feature strobe lighting and special effects.  We will endeavour to make sure walkways and paths are well lit, but please be aware due to the nature of the event it may be slightly darker in certain areas.  After 17:00 certain paths are not lit and are consequently off limits to the public, please respect the signs and any directions from our staff.


Guide dogs

Guide dogs are allowed at the event, water will happily be provided by the bars if you are bringing a bowl along.


Staging

This year, we don’t have any viewing stations in the venues, though the main stage is at the bottom of a hill to it makes visibility much easier. There will be space for wheelchairs in the inside spaces.
