VegfestUK Brighton & Bristol 2017 welcome visitors with disabilities

VegfestUK Brighton & Bristol 2017 welcome visitors with disabilities

2017-03-07 
| by Editor

Following feedback from some of our visitors after previous events, the organisers of VegfestUK Brighton and Bristol 2017 are putting in place a number of measures at this year’s events to ensure that visitors with disabilities are welcome and can enjoy the show with minimal stress:

 

VegfestUK Brighton 2017 (March 11th 12th 2017 at the Brighton Centre)

  1. BSL interpretation is available for the first 2 sessions in the Easy Veganism area on the Saturday March 11th 2017. For full details of these 2 sessions, see http://brighton.vegfest.co.uk/talks---easy-veganism 
     
  2. In each talks room / cinema with rows of seating, there will be a couple of seats for visitors with disabilities in the front row of every talks room, and 2 spaces for wheelchairs/mobility scooters made available Anyone who is hard of hearing, or has a disability, and want to sit in the front row, should make themselves known to stewards manning the talks room in question, and priority seating will be arranged.
     
  3. Disabled toilets are clearly marked on printed visitor booklets (to be handed out to visitors at the entrance) as well as on the maps on signage posters erected on the walls of the venue.
     
  4. Priority entry is available for visitors with disabilities, mobility scooters, etc on both days.
     
  5. Visitors with disabilities will be allowed to come to the front of the queue at other times.

 

 

VegfestUK Bristol 2017 (May 20th 21st 2017 at the Amphitheatre)

  1. Ramps are in place from the Exit to the slope down to the Amphitheatre, at least 1m wide, for wheelchair access.
     
  2. In each talks room / cinema with rows of seating, there will be a couple of seats for visitors with disabilities in the front row of every talks room, and 2 spaces for wheelchairs/mobility scooters made available Anyone who is hard of hearing, or has a disability, and want to sit in the front row, should make themselves known to stewards manning the talks room in question, and priority seating will be arranged.
     
  3. Disabled toilets are clearly marked with one set at each end.
     
  4. In the case of rain, there is a priority area in place for visitors with disability - namely the Amphitheatre Seating Area (just next to the Stage Marquee), and the Waterfront Seating Area (just next to the Cookery Demos tent)
     
  5. For parents / babies etc - there is a buggy park / nappy change near the end of the Amphitheatre (near the way to the Traders Car Park)
     
  6. For people with disabilities - the show is opening at 10:45am on the Sunday only, with priority entry for visitors with disabilities, mobility scooters, etc - official opening hour for the remaining visitors on Sunday is 11:30am on Sunday (as opposed to the usual 11:00am at previous events).
