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.
