Accessibility is incredibly important to us here at Chapel Allerton Arts Festival. We’re working hard to make it as accessible and enjoyable for as many people as possible.
During the Festival Weekend, our friendly volunteer Stewards will be on hand to assist you. They can be identified by a yellow high vis with the words ‘Festival Steward’ on the back.
If you have any questions about access on the Festival Site or at Fringe Events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Festival opening times
Friday 5pm – 10:30pm
Saturday 11am – 10:30pm
Sunday 10am – 6pm
There are three entrances and exits to the Festival site.
All three entrances to the Festival are wheelchair accessible. Stewards will be at each entrance/ exit to help with anything you may need. Entrance to the site is free, but as we are a charity, we ask for a suggested donation of £3 to support the Festival.

Toilets will be located on the Festival site on the corner of Regent Street and Well Lane, outside Sukhothai restaurant. There are ramps over the curb to the toilets.
We will have accessible toilets on site. The location of these will be updated before the event.
Although dogs are welcome at some of our Festival Fringe events and venues, we ask that dogs don’t enter the main Festival site on Regent Street. This not only makes the site accessible for small children and adults who may not be comfortable around dogs, it also protects dogs from the stress and noise of a crowd and the Festival.
Assistance dogs are welcome on our site.
The Chill Zone will be in Chapel Allerton Methodist Church Saturday 12pm – 5pm.
This will provide a quieter environment away from the busy street. In the main hall there will be scheduled low stimulation creative family activities. There will also be a separate quiet room for all to use as needed.
There are lots of quiet green spaces in close proximity to the site.
Chapel Allerton Park is approximately a 3-minute walk from the Woodland Lane entrance to the Festival site.
Gledhow Valley Woods is approximately a 17-minute walk from the Woodland Lane entrance to the Festival site.
