Icons Festival is fully committed to making our event accessible to all as far as we possibly can. It should be noted that Apps Court is an open grassland venue with some slopes. If there is concern about the terrain we would recommend a visit to the site before booking, possibly on a Sunday or Bank Holiday when the car boots are held.
Blue Badge Parking
We will provide parking for blue badge holders as close to the stage as possible, together with accessible toilet facilities.
Disabled Access Viewing Platform
We have a Disabled Access Viewing Platform available at Icons Festival. Viewing platform spaces are allocated on a first come first serve basis and are not guaranteed for all attendees. Please apply and we will be allocate space if there is availability. Please apply with our Access Application Form, fill it out and email it us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch. Note that the form has the ability to be filled out on your computer as well as printed and scanned.
Personal Assistant (PA) TICKET SCHEME
Ticket holders who are disabled are welcome to apply for a free ticket in cases where a personal assistant is required to make access to our festival possible. The carer must be at least 18 years old and proof of age may be asked for.
We will provide disabled attendees who are in receipt of middle or higher rate Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment who purchase their own ticket with a free ticket for a personal assistant to accompany them. It is a condition that applicants provide evidence of DLA or PIP when completing the personal assistant ticket form.

Please note that you must also send proof that you have already purchased a ticket so that we can add the PA ticket to your booking.
Free tickets for personal assistants are restricted to 1 per applicant unless additional recognised documentation is produced stating that additional personal assistants are required. Free tickets for PAs are issued at the discretion of Icons Festival 2019. Careers must be at least 18 years old and proof of age at the event may be required.
