Venue & Festival Charter

This Charter was updated in 2016 in order to bring together all of the knowledge and best practice advice developed by Attitude is Everything since we began working with the live music industry in 2000.  It is designed to guide venue and event organisers through a wide range of topics, and ultimately enable the achievement of Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

Our aim is to help venue and event organisers to understand the potential access requirements of Deaf and disabled people at venues, festivals and outdoor arts events, and thus build equality into the strategic process.  The shared ethos of both Charters is that Deaf and disabled people should be as independent as they want to be at live music and cultural events.
