Accessible Viewing Points (In front of the UberEats Festival stage)
Providing space for those that need it with a great view of the action – this is very close to the stage so expect it to be loud – the viewing area will be closed before and for the duration of any pyrotechnic effects for safety purposes.

Throughout the day, interpreters will be working alongside our hosts to offer BSL provision for the stage.
