At Stow Festival, we work with the venues to try and bring you a festival that is as accessible as possible. We want everyone to be able to enjoy The Stow Festival, regardless of age, gender, disability, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation, or anything else.

In terms of wheelchair accessibility, our festival is hosted in existing venues so we are as accessible as those venues. Shows in the Town Square and the majority of our venues are accessible for wheelchairs as there are no stairs.

Unfortunately some venues, such as paid-for shows upstairs at the Rose & Crown, are upstairs and there is not a lift in the building. We are really sorry about that but there is no way for us to make them accessible via any other route except up the stairs.

If you feel that you need the festival programme in a format alternative to either the printed version, the line-up information as presented on this website, or on the mobile app, please get in touch with us and we will do everything we can reasonably do to present the information in a format accessible to you.

If you would like to attend one of our shows and have a personal assistant for a reason related to a disability, again, we would be happy to make arrangements with the venue, so get in touch.
