All of our main market venues are accessible to wheelchair users and mobility scooters. We have disabled toilets in multiple different areas of the Festival. Chadwick’s yard has a ramp at either end and a gravel surface, which is not suitable for small wheeled scooters, but there is a short route around to Tivertons & Horsingtons. Upper & Lower Brewery Yard are separated by steps, but there is wheelchair access between the two via Market Street. Please be aware that there are some uneven surfaces.

Ticketed Venues: Additional ticketed events take place in various locations around Abergavenny. Unfortunately the Timothy Oulton Drinks’ Theatre is not accessible for wheelchair users. Most venues have hearing loops installed.  Please get in touch to confirm this is the case for the events you wish to attend.

Carers Tickets: Please get in touch for more information about tickets for carers.

Can I bring my dog? No dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs, are allowed in any of the internal or external market venues. As they may spend much of the day in your car, we advise that you leave your dog at home.
