Some of you dance all day, some like to sit and watch, some like to picnic, some just need a rest and so we have seating.
In a bit more detail - we have some benches around the new Market Square under cover! We have over 700 seats in The Big Club. We have over 200 chairs in FDH for those of you who want to rest between dances. There are seats in All About Children, the Festival Green bar and The Den. There are smart benches in the enlarged Food Shelter and also scattered around the site.
In Venue 65 we find most people who attend would rather dance or stand and watch so we have allocated a large area for dancing and standing in front of the stage and back to the PA / Lights control desk. For those who want to be near the stage but seated, there will be a limited number of chairs on a first come first seated basis. More space will be available for your own chairs (space permitting). If space becomes an issue, you may be asked to remove chairs to allow more people into this predominantly standing venue. We hope that the mix of seating and standing means that everyone can enjoy the music in the way that they want to. We have also positioned a large viewing platform for our disabled customers next to the PA / Lights control desk, with an accessible ramp into the outside compound, where the venue’s toilets (accessible to all) are sited.
We hope this will make a visit to Venue 65 to see our headline acts a more comfortable experience and adaptable for all.
