Now the sun is out it means festival and concert season in the UK. For a disabled person attending a festival or a concert can be made so much more difficult when accessibility is not addressed.

Festivals, concerts, theatres, and other events are all provided by service providers that are bound by the Equality Act and therefore it is essential that organisers and companies make reasonable adjustments to allow disabled people the right to enjoy events in the same way as the wider public.

Reasonable adjustments can, but are not limited to, include allowing personal assistance companion tickets alongside a disabled access ticket, wheelchair platforms, Britisih Sign Language provision, closed captioning, suitable and safe disabled parking and access to accessible toilets and facilities.

Although this seems straight forward, some festivals and events organisers fall foul of their obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and continue to discriminate against disabled people.

A claim for discrimination can be brought against event organisers for the failing to provide reasonable adjustments and discriminating against those with disabilities.
