What provision do you have for people with disabilities?


We aim to make visiting Springtime Live a comfortable and enjoyable experience for people with disabilities and welcome any observations on further improvements. Please find details regarding accessibility for visitors:

Disabled parking

An area of car park near the main entrance is the designated car park for disabled visitors. Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Disabled permits must be clearly visible and access will only be granted to registered disabled drivers or their carers. Parking spaces cannot be reserved.

Inside the showground

The majority of walkways are of hard-standing and most public buildings and animal areas have ramps or are accessible by wheelchairs. Whilst we try to ensure that the grass avenues are flat, the Showground is on a sloping site which means that some degree of effort is required to push a wheelchair around.  Most of the areas used for Springtime Live are reasonably level.

Tickets for disabled visitors & carers

Disabled visitors may bring a carer free of charge.  The disabled visitor must purchase a ticket in advance to gain entry for themselves.  With regard to a free entrance for the carer, we ask for you to bring proof of care requirement such as personal independence payment, disability living allowance, carers allowance or blue badge registration number to show at the gate on the day.

Disabled toilets

The majority of toilets on the Showground and within the halls have disabled facilities.
