General information for disabled visitors coming to the Eisteddfod
Getting to the Eisteddfod
Disabled parking is available at all our car parks. Please make sure your blue badge is visible when entering the car park so that the stewards can guide you to the disabled spaces.
Renting a scooter or wheelchair
We work in partnership with Living Life (Byw Bywyd) to enable visitors with mobility issues to enjoy their visit to the festival. The Byw Bywyd stand is always as close as possible to the main entrance to the Maes, and you can hire wheelchairs and scooters for your visit here.
We do advise visitors who require this service to book ahead and this can be done by ringing 01286 830 101.
There is a facility for visitors with disabilities requiring a quiet space from the busy Maes to relax. The Llecyn Llonydd can be found on the site map or ask one of the stewarding team for directions.
There may be use of strobe lighting in some buildings and on the stages during some performances / shows.
In each block of toilets there is one which especially adapted for people with disabilities, with a ramp for ease of access. The toilet block next to the First Aid Unit / Pavilion has (low independency) toilet. There is a lock on this toilet which is operated with a ‘RADAR’ key. Anyone needing to use this facility without the required key should go to the information desk in the Visitors’ Centre or the First aid Unit.
Accessibility around the Maes
There should be a ramp for every building on the field. If you have difficulty in accessing any of the buildings, let the Eisteddfod office know at once. If you are having servere difficulties navigating around the Maes, contact one of the Steward Supervisors (red high vis vests) who will be able to call for assistance.
