Access Information

On this page you’ll find accessibility details for all of our venues. If something you need to know isn’t covered here then please get in touch at sheafpoetryfestival@gmail.com and we can find out for you. If you have particular access needs (for example, if you’d like a front seat reserved to enable you to lip-read, or you’d like access to the venue slightly earlier than programmed), please get in touch and we’ll do our best to ensure we meet your needs.
