VegfestUK Brighton has in place a number of measures to ensure that visitors with disabilities are welcome at this year’s event on March 24-25 at the Brighton Centre:

  1. Visitors with disabilities are welcome to purchase a concessions ticket here, and request a free ticket for a carer at [email protected].
  2. Visitors with disabilities are welcome to come to the front of the queue at other times.
  3. Visitors with invisible illnesses are welcome to request priority entrance or assistance.
  4. Priority entry is available for visitors with disabilities, mobility scooters, etc on both days.
  5. Accessible toilets are clearly marked on the maps on signage posters erected on the walls of the venue.
  6. In each talks room with rows of seating, seats will be made available for visitors with disabilities in the front row of the talks rooms, and spaces for wheelchairs/mobility scooters made available. Anyone who is hard of hearing, or has a disability, and requires front-row seating, should make themselves known to stewards manning the talks room in question, and priority seating will be arranged.
  7. For some talks, there will be a British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter available, updates will be posted on the event website before the event.
  8. Elevators are readily available at the venue for visitors with disabilities to go from one floor to another – locations of elevators at the venue are clearly marked on signage posters at the event.
