SITE ACCESS

We Out Here is held at Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire. The site is a farmland site with varying topography and ground conditions so an all-terrain wheelchair or pushchair will be required.

All routes in and out of venues, campsites, and various areas of the site will be wide enough for wheelchair access, however there are areas of the site with limited access due to slopes and rough ground. Stewards will be available to assist as far as possible.

We are predominantly an open-air event and weather conditions can dramatically affect the ground conditions, so make sure to check the forecast ahead and consider preparations you may need to make and any extra equipment that may be necessary.

Access to site will be via the accessibility parking – arrange for complimentary car parking via accessible@weoutherefestival.com

Accessibility parking will be next to accessible camping and check in with an easy route into the festival for all accessible customers. If you are being dropped off, the accessible car park will also act as a drop off point for customer wishing to check in via accessible check-in.

Signs and staffing will direct you to the right place.
