Please read all the information here before attending Umbrella Arts Festival. If the information below does not answer your query, please contact us.

 SITE DESCRIPTION

Umbrella Arts Festival is an outdoor event utilising a park field, and this can pose some mobility problems, particularly in bad weather conditions. If it rains it may get muddy and access around the site (other than on paths) may be very difficult. Electric wheelchairs can tackle most areas without too much trouble but the ground can be uneven in places and is predominantly on grass.

There are some pathways which run through the festival entrance down the centre of the festival, but areas by the stages are on grass. We do not offer any internal transport due to the limitations of moving around the site. The festival site is very flat which should aide mobility around the park.
