At HowTheLightGetsIn, we strive to ensure that everyone can enjoy the event, so we try our best to make the festival site as accessible as possible.

Festival Site

HowTheLightGetsIn takes place on the bank of the River Wye. The area is predominantly grass, with limited hard standing pathways. In the event of bad weather, mud and puddles are likely.

There will be some hardened pathways covering the main walking routes through the site, but just as we prepare for all conditions we do ask that you do to. So please consider the ground conditions and unpredictable British weather when deciding what facilities you may need and what equipment you need to bring.

We will of course have dedicated Disabled Toilets - location TBC closer to the time of the festival.

Car Park Access
There will be an on-site car park with dedicated Disabled spaces. We will confirm details of how to book a space here closer to the time of the festival.

Personal Assistant / Carer Ticket
We provide a free ticket for a personal assistant or carer to ticket holders who would be unable to attend, or those whose experience would be greatly impaired without their presence.

In order to apply please drop us an email at We will endeavour to respond to your request within 7 working days.

Any other questions?
Get in touch with us by emailing and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
