November 5th often falls on a week night and as such is not conducive to staging a large-scale show such as this one, complete with a plethora of entertainment and licenced bars.

We advise entry through Gate A on Anerley Hill for wheelchairs and people with limited mobility. Please bear in mind that this is a festival event and as such will be on a grass surface which may be slightly uneven. It is always worth checking weather conditions on the day and making any adjustments to equipment you may need to bring with you for your convenience and comfort.

We provide a free personal assistant ticket to people who may need personal help from a trusted assistant at the event.

This is a simple process following the points below:

1. Order a ticket from Ticket Arena in the same name as is shown on the proof of disability document.

2. Send your proof of disability document (photo/scan by email) which can include current Disabled Living Allowance document, PIP or equivalent

3. We would then provide you with an equivalent ticket
