LMF ACCESSIBILITY

We are constantly striving to make Looe Music Festival more accessible for people with disabilities.

Please read the information below about the festival and if you have specific needs or concerns then please get in touch and we will do our best to help.

THE VENUE

Looe Music Festival takes place in the Cornish coastal town of Looe, Cornwall. Roads and pavements are flat and can be easily accessed in wheelchairs or by those with mobility problems. Although, consideration should be given to the distance between the two stages, car parking and public transport facilities. The distance the car park to the beach front (main stage) is approximately 0.5 miles.

Looe Music Festival has designated flat viewing areas in the harbour marquee and on the promenade for viewing main stage. Access onto the sanded beach areas can be difficult for those using wheelchairs, it is advised that access onto the beach is done so with a beach wheelchair. The main stage can be viewed from the designated area on the promenade as mention above.  Please note space in the viewing areas is limited and will be restricted at busy periods, we cannot guarantee space will be available for you and your party at all times. Stewards will be around throughout the weekend to offer assistance and advise on facilities should you need them.

The disabled access facilities at Looe Music Festival are for festival-goers with permanent disabilities. People with broken legs, recent injuries or pregnant women do not automatically qualify but will be allocated a place in the disabled camping area and/or other passes IF there is space available but it cannot be guaranteed.

Fold away camping chair can be brought into the Looe Music Festival managed areas, however use is at the discretion of Event supervisors / security based on the capacity of the arenas.

TOILETS

There are disabled portaloos at both the harbour stage and the beach arena. Looe’s public conveniences also have disabled toilets accessed by radar key, these are location in Millpool Car Park, just off Fore Street and on the promenade.

DISABLED PARKING

Parking facilities for Looe Music Festival is the Cornwall Council owned Millpool Car Park, which operates a pay and display tariff. There are a limited number of dedicated disabled spaces available on a first come first serve basis. Should you need assistance in crossing the bridge to access the town, please speak to our transport partners, Plymouth City Bus who’ll be in the car park during the weekend, and they can arrange a shuttle bus for you.

A Blue Badge will be required in both car parks.
