ACCESSIBLE FACILITIES AVAILABLE:

1. Accessible Camping:

If you would like to Camp in the Accessible Campsite, you will need to purchase a ‘Weekend with Camping’ Ticket.

Please DO NOT purchase a ‘Quieter Camping’ Ticket as these only apply to the Quieter Campsite within General Camping.

If you would like to bring a Campervan, Caravan or Trailer Tent into the Accessible Campsite, you will additionally need to purchase a Campervan Pass. Space is limited so early booking advisable.

We ask that each customer (wherever possible) has a maximum of up to 3 other people in their camping party i.e. a total of 4 people (including your Personal Assistant if applicable).  This again is due to limited space.

If you do intend to invite a larger group of people to camp with you, please contact us directly on info@cornburyfestival.com before Friday 14th June 2019.

Glamping – Most of our Glamping Operators can provide their services for you within the Accessible Campsite should you with to purchase one of our Glamping options.  Please contact them directly.

2. Accessible Parking:

The Accessible Car Park will be positioned as close to the Festival Arena as possible. Please be aware that the route to the Arena from the Car Park will be across grass.  If you require assistance getting from the Car Park to the Arena, please ask one of our Stewards and they will be happy to help you.

The Accessible Car Park is only for Day Ticket Holders and those Camping in the Accessible Campsite.  If you are Camping in one of the Main Campsites, you will not need access to the Accessible Car Park as you will be using a different entrance to the Festival Site and your car will therefore be parked closer to where you are camping.
