A. We want everyone to be able to enjoy our events, participate, feel safe, as well as being part of the crowd. The following section aims to help you make an informed decision about attending. All disabled customers are welcomed at MCD shows, but note that this event takes place on a sloping greenfield site. Parts of this site may have undulating sections of terrain, meaning that sometimes access is not that easy. Stewards however, will be at hand to assist.
We will provide a platform just beneath the wheelchair platform on the side of the hill beneath the castle at Slane for people who have mobility or standing problems. We can issue you a pass to the disabled car park, which is the closet car park to the site – though please bear in mind that everywhere at Slane is a long walk! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a car pass. Note that space in this area is limited. Please contact us well in advance to allow us to plan for your arrival.
If you know that you will need to charge your electric wheelchair at the one of our events, please get in touch with us beforehand to make arrangements. Email us at email@example.com
Non-disabled customers may be asked to leave the platform when it is busy to facilitate those more deserving and we ask all customers to be considerate of others needs.
Patrons will require a Disabled ticket to access the viewing platforms. These platforms are solely for the use of disabled people and their carers. Platform access ramps will have a gradient to lend itself to improved ease of access. All platforms have loose seating for carers. In the summer months, our outdoor show platforms are not covered. There maybe use of laser and strobe lights at the event. Those persons affected by lighting should ensure they have sufficient time to leave the viewing platform/crowd before effects begin. Please bear in mind the audience may be very large and movement through the crowd slow.
Where possible, a disabled toilet should be located nearby and its use restricted to disabled patrons. If possible, at least one person accompanying the disabled patron will be accommodated on the platform. All staff are briefed regarding arrangements for disabled customers, and if you experience problems dealing with any staff on site, we do wish to hear from you, preferably at the event.
