The Site– the beautiful woodland glade is in the middle of Horseheath Racecourse which is a huge expanse of green. Drive slowly and carefully and follow the signs and directions to the correct flags to reach the car park and the campsite, there are horse jumps on the site which we will try and steer you around. From the car park and campsite there is a short walk down hill of about 100 metres. Underfoot is long grass. The main paths in the woodland are grass, good underfoot and easily accessible. Some smaller paths in the woodland are more challenging but we will clear these to make them as easy underfoot as possible. Once you are inside the woodland it is a small site to navigate your way around with no more than 200 metres to walk between stages and areas.
PA/Carer ticktets – we offer free tickets for carers or assistants of somebody who is registered disabled. Proof of disability allows automatic Personal Assistant (PA) tickets and accessible facilities are primarily for those who are registered disabled, so you’re automatically eligible if you can provide a copy of your Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or Access Card (for a personal assistant ticket) or Blue Badge (for accessible camping or parking).
