What accessibility

aids do you provide?

Due to the fact that Funk in the Forest is in its first year running with a limited budget, we can’t provide ALL the amazing accessibility aids that some of the major festivals provide, but we can provide some of them. With that being said we will have wheelchair access toilet which come with ramps for useful for all aids not just wheelchairs. We have an access road which is suitable to use by those who need a more stable route to travel to the main stage on, whether that be for wheelchairs, walking aids, guide dogs, support canes etc. Our other two stages are situated in the main area next to the camp site with stable roads suitable for all to travel on. We have a team of fully trained volunteers who are around at all hours to help when needed. This is in addition to our welfare tent situated with our United Medical Service team. Finally, although we cannot provide viewing platforms (funk in the forest is a tiny festival, therefore you shouldn’t worry about not being able to view the acts) we will have an area suitable to those who need it separate from the main crowd area (we must specify that this is only for the Forest Stage and Tent Stage as the other Stage is not big enough but is located in our food tent so there will be plenty of room for all without it being crowded). Furthermore, anyone with a disability of any kind can come and check in at HQ to avoid queues. From here we can issue wristbands and direct you to our access road and camping which we have allocated to anyone who needs to be closer to the main arena, toilet and the access road which takes you to the access road and main stage etc.
