Accessibility

Youth Beatz site is flat farmland covered in grass with the site separated by gravel roadways and pathways.

Access may prove difficult to negotiate in some areas of the park should there be adverse wet weather.

We have the following measures in place to ensure that Youth Beatz Festival is accessible to all:

  • A viewing platform with a stewarded accessible toilet is located to the right in the main stage arena.
  • A second entrance and exit into the site from the Youth Beatz Carpark for Group Bookings and Blue Badge Holders. The introduction of the second entrance will ensure easier access to/from the site.
  • Non-stewarded accessible toilets are located throughout the site.
  • We’re bringing a Mobile Changing Places toilet to Youth Beatz.  This provides specialist equipment and additional space and should make Youth Beatz an event for anyone.
  • We welcome assistance animals onto the site. There will be an area provided for toileting and drinking.
  • There will be general warning signs around the Main Arena if strobe lighting will be used. Due to the nature of the artists, it is likely that strobe lighting will be used throughout the performances. There will not be a warning immediately before a period of strobe lighting.
  • There will be a First Aid and Welfare tent located in the Main Arena that will be easily visible. There will also be Medics and First Aiders on patrol around the event.
  • There will be no fireworks at the event, although some stage pyrotechnics may be used.
  • The Festival site will have a Quiet Zone. This will be in the form of a tented area with soft seating and will allow attendees to get away from noise and business of the rest of the site. The area will be located at the furthest point from the stages and fairground and will be staffed by Youth Work staff at all times.
  • If you require the use of a hearing loop, please visit the box office on arrival then there will be a hearing loop installed.
  • British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters will be available at both entrances between 12-2pm for general queries. There will also be dedicated Toon Tours with BSL interpreters on both event days at the following times: Saturday 4-5pm and Sunday 2:30-3:30pm, 4-5pm.
  • A Multifunctional room will be available opposite the Quiet Zone for uses such as prayer, breastfeeding and taking medication.
  • Sensory Packs will be available for hire from the Quiet Zone that include Ear Defenders and Fidget Toys for the duration of both event days.
