We seek to have accessible seating available at all our venues. Currently we offer wheelchair accessible seating and free tickets for Essential Companions or Personal Assistants.

Wheelchair Tickets

We aim to have wheelchair accessible seats at all Festival events.

How to book wheelchair accessible tickets online

  1. For some events you can simply select the ticket option Wheelchair.
  2. For other events, with reserved seating plans or limited wheelchair accessible space, before you look at events and select your tickets, to get access to wheelchair tickets you’ll need to login to your booking account and go to Other Preferences. Here check the box next to I’m a wheelchair user (electric) or I’m a wheelchair user (manual) and any other option which are relevant to you.
  3. Now have a look at the What’s on page and book your tickets.
  4. When you get to select your tickets, on a reserved plan, wheelchair accessible spaces will have a wheelchair symbol on them. On unreserved plans there will be the option to choose Wheelchair Users.
  5. On unreserved plans please purchase essential companion tickets or other members of your party in the general allocation, or area adjacent to the wheelchair user section chosen, this does not mean you will sit in different areas, but ensures we keep within the capacity for wheelchair users in each venue.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
