UK: Victorious Festival has been awarded a Silver distinction on Attitude is Everything’s Charter of Best Practice for its commitment to being accessible to deaf and disabled music fans.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to support Victorious to achieve Silver on our Charter of Best Practice,” said Paul Hawkins, AIE’s Festivals and Volunteering Manager. “We’ve been really impressed how the festival have engaged as a whole staff team, including undertaking Disability Equality Training and being responsive to customer feedback. Their dedicated access team have worked hard to make the festival as accessible as possible and we look forward to supporting them to progress further up the Charter in the future.”
In addition to the festival’s long running and popular Personal Assistant ticket scheme – which allows a free ticket to be issued to those who would be unable to attend the event without the help of another – it has also improved facilities across the site.
In 2018, improvements to accessibility included having high dependency mobile toilet units onsite, portable hearing loops available for hearing aid users, and sign language interpreters available to translate artist sets throughout the weekend.
