Overview

I was very happy to be able to return to the gamefair for the first time since being in a wheelchair (5 years). They provide a free carer pass which is always great as I require a carer. There was no rain this week so the ground was dry! The paths were very bumpy and gravely, it would have been awful in my manual wheelchair and I ended up trying to stay on the grass next to the path as it was short. In the actual tents the grass was long though and my wheels spun a bit on it an I got stuck once! Sorted with a push though. The big disappointment to me was Artists in Action as it was on a raised platform with no wheelchair access! There were quite a few tents like this but this was the one I really wanted to see. There was a ramp that was also really high of the ground which made no sense, they could have added a ramp that actually reached the ground. However, I still had a great day! It was so much fun and there were so many great stalls

Transport & Parking

3

There is free parking *near* to the entrance but the grass is quite long and was a challenge for my powerchair so pushing a manual wheelchair would be difficult. It’s still fairly far to walk (unless your there first thing) so iff your hiring a wheelchair or scooter then be aware you may need to walk a good 40 feet min to the entrance. Kudos for the free parking though.

Access

Toilets

The accessible toilet was great! Smooth ramp up, huge space, even with a shower! I didnt see a changing places toilet though and you would NOT want to change someone on those floors.

Staff

I didn’t really speak to any official staff but there were a lot of volunteers . Stall holders were all so friendly and helpful

Anything else you wish to tell us?

I’d only recommend going in a manual wheelchair if you’re ok with it being bumpy and you’d need to have some good upper body strength to self-propell. Most of the event is totally accessible though. There aren’t many seats if you need a rest and are on crutches. But I still had an amazing day!
