Is there disabled access?
Yes, The Good Life Experience is a weekend for everyone to enjoy, and we try our best to make the site as accessible as we can. Although part of the site is tarmac, there is a lot of grass, which can make difficult if it rains. Please prepare for all weather conditions and consider the ground conditions when deciding what equipment to bring.
We have disabled parking and toilet facilities. If you require disabled access and/or a carer's ticket, or any further information, please contact Vicky on firstname.lastname@example.org or call Monday-Friday between 9am-5pm.
