Access at the Festival

More plus

IF welcomes everyone and seeks to improve access at each new Festival edition. We do this through developing new creative work with d/Deaf and disabled artists and working with interpreters to make our artworks and performances accessible. The programming and production team consider access for our artists, performers, audiences, participants, volunteers and staff at every stage throughout the 10 days of the Festival and during the two years of Festival development.

Festival Staff have taken part in Disability, Equality and Customer Care Training, aiming to improve access for all disabled people including wheelchair users, d/Deaf or hard of hearing, blind and visually impaired people, those with long-term health conditions and neurodiverse customers.

Our friendly team of volunteers wear bright pink T-shirts, and are available with information about events and will help to make your experience enjoyable. 

If you have any suggestions for improving access at the Festival please, please contact: Ursula White (Community Inclusion) by email:
