Accessibility / Families at Glas-Denbury
Glas-Denbury is for everyone and we warmly welcome all guests. We do everything we can to ensure accessibility for all. We are committed and passionate about endeavouring to fulfil any of our guests’ requirements and help where we can.
We have a dedicated accessibility team, ensuring our guests needs are met as much as possible and every year we endeavour to develop and grow the accessibility of the festival, based on feedback and suggestions from our guests. We are registered with and take guidance from Euan’s Guide as well as other local and national organisations as to how we can continue to improve on our accessibility for everyone.
The site is farmland, with the camping, car park and arena all grassland. Some areas can be a little more uneven than others, but we have stewards and a team on hand should you need assistance getting to/from the arena and within the arena we can provide this between areas. Glas-Denbury isn’t a huge site; it is laid out over just 3 fields, with the arena all in one field. This what makes it so safe, accessible and beautiful with everything within easy reach.
We are committed to working with our guests’ individual needs wherever possible so please do not hesitate to contact us if any questions you have that are not answered here on the website, or you have any other concerns.
ACCESSIBLE PARKING/DROP OFF – The car park is located right next to the arena and campsite, so it is not far to go between vehicles and campsite/arena. There will be dedicated teams available with vehicles to help. Accessible parking is still located near to the main arena entrance/camping entrance is available for Blue Badge holders and we endeavour to park families with children as close to the entrance as well. Please ensure your Blue Badge is displayed on arrival together with your car parking pass. A drop off point is also located nearer to the entrance.
