disabled access & facilities

It’s really important to us that everybody enjoys Bristol Volksfest and we do as much as we can to assist our disabled visitors. In previous years we have been blessed with lots of hard standing, concrete areas but it’s important to consider that the new venue is on a green field farm site. Although the ground is very flat and solid, there are no hard standing areas or concrete pathways. The event is situated in open grass fields with a few lumps and bumps with some uneven surfaces that could make it tricky to get about.
 

Disabled Parking:

There is a designated disabled parking area at the front of the main car park. Please follow signs for ‘Day Visitors’ when approaching the site. This is the closest place to park to the main show site and is right next to the entrance to the show arena. To park in the disabled parking area, visitors must present a legitimate disabled parking permit in the window of their vehicle. Spaces cannot be pre booked and are allocated on a first come first served basis.


Disabled toilets:

There are disabled toilets situated around the show site including in both ends of the trade arena and the campsites. These facilities are for the use of disabled visitors only. If you can’t locate them, please ask one of our friendly staff and they will be able to direct you straight to one.

There is also a designated disabled shower on site, situated with the main showers.


Assistance dogs are welcome:
