TICKET PAYMENT

DISABLED VISITORS

Most events and venues are suitable for wheelchair access.Disabled toilets are available on site and also can be found near to the festival entrance by Bakewell Bridge.

Whilst actual marquee venues have wooden flooring it is important to note that the event is held on a mainly grassed area that may have some rutting in places and make mobility difficult. 

 

QUALITY OF PRODUCTS

What about the quality of the food and drink at the Festival?We will of course try to ensure that all the food and drink supplied at, and associated with the Festival, is of the highest taste quality and of the highest standard of production. We will try to ensure that products are produced with respect to the environment. We choose the exhibitors at the festival, and the suppliers of take-away food, very carefully, but we cannot examine or analyse every product by every supplier. But any supplier that is found to be supplying food or drink at the festival that does not meet our standards and requirements will be asked to stop doing so - and is very unlikely to be asked to return next year.
