It’s extremely important to us that BJC is an accessible event for anyone who wants to attend. Here are a few of the things we are doing to make the event more accessible for everyone.

  • Carers tickets are available (email
  • There are accessible toilets and showers inside, as well as accessible toilets on the field.
  • Accessible parking spaces – there are some on site, let us know when you book your car parking ticket if you need one.
  • Accessible camping area – close to the venue with the option to have your car next to your tent (please note, for safety reasons the car must stay on site for the full duration of your stay). Let us know if you need to use this space.
  • Lift access throughout the venue.
  • Sensory room
  • Quiet room
  • Parent & toddler room
  • Reflection & Multifaith space
  • Although the toilets in the school are gendered, we will be marking all toilets on site as gender neutral.
  • Showers are gendered however there are multiple accessible showers that you are welcome to use if you would prefer not to use the gendered showers.
  • Joe (our caterer) will be catering for all dietary requirements. There will be meat, vegetarian, and vegan options at all meal times. If you have any allergies, let us know in advance and we can cater to those as well.
  • We’re aware that BJC takes place during Ramadan this year. Evening food will be served past sunset. Breakfast can be made available before sunrise if needed (please let us know in advance).
  • Earplugs will be available at the shows (or from reg desk in between)
  • Shows will contain trigger warnings (let us know of any specific triggers you want us to be aware of)
  • Technology willing, there will be an indoor screening room where you can watch the main shows away from the big top.
  • Ramp access to the stage.
  • Priority Seating: if you struggle to stand in a queue for long periods of time or need early access to the show, let us know in advance and then speak to Reg Desk to arrange this.
  • Online workshop timetable updated daily at the event (use ‘list view’ is you are using a screen reader).
  • Colour coded timetable alongside symbols to help you easily filter and identify the workshops you are interested in.
  • “Anyone can fly” – our aerial team are offering specific accessible workshops to allow everyone the chance to have a go.
  • When filling in the form to run a workshop, volunteers are asked whether there are any barriers to accessibility in their workshop. This will be displayed on the workshop cards. Please note: our workshops are run entirely by volunteers who may not be fully trained to run accessible workshops – this means that they may not be aware of certain barriers or restrictions to taking part.
  • Fridge access can be arranged if needed for medicine etc.
  • Assistance dogs are welcome on site (you will need to agree to a Code of Conduct for the dog on entry to the event, which includes always remaining with the dog).
This is not a comprehensive list but will hopefully give you some idea of what you can expect from our event. If there’s something you need that’s not on the list, get in touch to let us know and we’ll do our best to help. We also have an accessibility lead who you can contact at if you have any questions.

When you purchase a ticket, there is an opportunity to tell us what accessibility needs you have – let us know the things we can do to make the event easier for you to attend and enjoy. Telling us what you might need in advance lets our team be as prepared as possible.
