Disabled Visitors

Information for disabled visitors coming to the Eisteddfod.

  1. What facilities are there for disabled visitors?

    It is the Eisteddfod’s policy to be an inclusive event and everyone is welcome. We make every effort to accommodate a diverse range of needs and to make the event as accessible as possible.

    ** It should be noted that the Eisteddfod is an open-air field event and as a result the terrain in some parts of the site may be difficult for wheelchair users to navigate. If you need further information about access arrangements for disabled people please let us know.**

    Each building has a ramp, and there are suitable toilets on the Maes and bays in the Pavilion for wheelchair users.

    Contact Byw Bywyd beforehand to order a wheelchair or scooter for use on the Maes - 01286830 101 or email post@byw-bywyd.co.uk.

    Guide dogs are welcome in the Pavilion and all the other buildings.

    A minibus service is also available around the Maes every day.

    The Pavilion’s translation service can be used as an audio-description service.

  2. I am a disabled visitor and would like to bring my personal assistant with me, will they have to pay full price for admission?

    If you require the help of a personal assistant, we offer tickets free of charge. Before issuing Personal Assistant tickets, we require one of the following forms of copied evidence:

    – Front page of DLA / PIP (no specific rate)

    – Front page of Attendance Allowance letter (no specific rate)

    – Evidence that registered severely sight impaired (blind)

    – Recognised Assistance Dog ID card

    – Credability’s Access Card

    We will take every reasonable step to make everyone’s visit to the Maes a pleasurable one. However, if you experience any difficulties please contact a member of staff. Your concerns will be dealt with and a member of the Eisteddfod’s Management Team will contact as soon as possible to discuss.

  3. Is there parking for people with disabilities?
