Access Starts Online

Our 2016 State of Access Report included the results from a survey of online access information for 386 UK venues and festivals.  This study found that whilst 65% offered some access information, of these 250, only 26% provided content rated as ‘good’. A total of 52% of all the venues and festivals surveyed provided poor information or none at all.

Access information is the gateway for many Deaf and disabled people when it comes to gauging whether or not a gig or festival might be for them.  It is one of the key places on your website to demonstrate your commitment to putting on a truly inclusive and welcoming event.  It is also something that any venue or festival of any scale can provide - including venues that may not be physically accessible.

To help venues and festivals achieve this, we produced the following Access Info guides and templates:
