Getting to Party at The Palace
The event takes place on farmland across two fields. Both are grass surface and have an incline so not ideal terrain for wheel chairs.
Getting to the site:
– access to the Blue Badge holders area is via the main car park. Please follow the parking marshals directions. This is free and does not need to be pre-booked. It is a walk of around 250m (150 grass and 100 hard surface) to the ticket check point and a further 100m to the disabled viewing platform.
Car Drop Off
– the best area to drop off is at the bottom of the road leading to the event. This is a busy route and is strictly for dropping off only. It is a walk of around 150 metres up an incline to the ticket check point and a further 100m to the disabled viewing platform.
Disabled Viewing Platform
– There is a platform cordoned off for disabled spectators with a view looking down towards the stage in a natural amphitheatre. Two accessible loos are situated adjacent to the platform. Space on the platform is on a first come basis and cannot be reserved. Additional seating for carers is available. We may need to prioritise those with disabilities in busy periods.
The event site is spread over 2 fields. They are separated by a tarmac drive. There is a gravel surface connecting the 2 fields with a gradient between them. That area aside, the entire site is grass and not very wheelchair friendly.
From the Station:
It’s around 1km from the station to the event site. Pavement all the way however there are slopes up and down between the station and the site. The worst of which is probably the one down from the station to the High Street.
To conclude; it is an outdoor music festival, taking place on farmland so we are not able to offer the kind of facilities that you would expect to find in a purpose built venue however we have made consideration to those with walking difficulties, people in wheelchairs and those with kids in pushchairs. We have asked our staff to assist at all times – this could include such things as pushing a wheelchair, or nipping to the bar or food vender.
We are delighted to be able to offer a large range of locally sourced, freshly prepared food and covering all dietary requirements. Please note that you can’t bring food or drink into the event; thank you.
Party at The Palace takes place on a grass field which includes an incline. The terrain may not be suitable for all types of buggy or wheelchair but our stewards are there to help and assist where possible. Loos for people with disabilities and baby changing facilities are available on site.
While many find it comfortable and convenient taking in a small folding chair to sit on, they are deemed an inconvenience by others. To strike a balance, PATP does allow people to bring in camping chairs however they will not be allowed to be positioned directly in front of the stage. There will be a ‘chair free zone’ in a stewarded area around 50 metres from the stage. There is a very large area beyond that in which you are welcome to ‘park’ your seating for the whole day and you can then of course move closer to the stage when you fancy getting into the thick of it and retiring back to your seats again – just like at the dancin! We would also ask you to think of the environment and take your chairs home with you”
Following advice from Police Scotland and in line with other music events this summer,Party at The Palace are obliged to pass on the following information.
In light of recent events, there will be an increased security and police presence at this years Party at The Palace. All customers and belongings may be subjected to searches. We would ask therefor that you only bring essentials to the event arena with a reminder that no food or drink can be brought into the event. Those caught in possession of any restricted item will have the item confiscated and may be refused entry. In addition we would ask you to consider fellow revellers; more bags mean more searches meaning larger queues. We will operate a fast track queue system for those without bags to enter quicker.
Small camping chairs will still be allowed in, however they will not be allowed to be positioned in the zone directly between the stage and mixing position. There will be an additional large screen and designated area for those who wish to have more space around them while still enjoying the event.
Please do not leave items unattended at any time and you see anything suspicious, please alert a member of security or police.
