Site description:

The majority of the Festival activities will take place on Park Bank, a grassy area near to the car park. There is a large flat grass area which can sometimes be bumpy especially if the moles or rabbits have been to visit.

Park Bank begins to incline quite steadily. At the top of the hill is the outdoor classroom where some theatre performances and festival activities will be taking place. This is a largely level clear area but sometimes can be bumpy if the rabbits or moles have been visiting.

Some activities will also take place in our orchard, a slightly gradient area of grass with lots of small trees, surrounded by hedges.

The Art Trail will take place around the remainder of the site this may include the sensory garden and lakes. There is a footpath and boardwalk that is suitable for prams, wheelchairs and tiny feet.

The meadow and walk along the River Trent is a grassy area that can sometimes get a bit muddy when it rains, but is flat.

The visitor centre is accessible, there is an indoor cafe, gift shop and toilets (including accessible) inside the main building.


There are accessible toilets in our visitor centre on site that will be available for the whole of the Festival activities.
