Disability Access

Beverley Folk Festival aims to provide access to all entertainment on site. Events within the Racecourse buildings have disability access. It should be noted that the main concert marquees and Festival Village are located on a green field site – we will always endeavour to provide assistance where necessary.
Parking spaces for blue badge holders are available on site subject to space via Gate 2.
The site includes disability friendly toilets.
Campers will be able to park next to their camping accommodation in a reserved area – please note, blue badges must be displayed in the vehicles windscreen at all times.

Dogs & Other Pets

We appreciate that the majority of dog owners are responsible, but the festival is required to have rules in place to cover all circumstances. Therefore, dogs are allowed on site within the following rules:

  • They must be kept on leads at all times.
  • Owners must clear up after them.
  • If your dog is liable to bark or is nervous around children, crowds or loud noise, please do not bring them to the festival for the sake of other festival goers and the animals themselves.
  • Dogs are not allowed inside any festival venue (e.g. marquees, bars, Racecourse rooms, etc.)
  • Assistance Dogs are permitted in all festival areas.
  • Campers must not leave dogs unattended in tents, caravans or campervans.
  • They must not be left in cars – this is for their own health and well-being. If this happens, the festival may take action if there are concerns about the welfare of an animal.
  • The festival management reserves the right to insist on the removal of a dog from the festival site if there are concerns regarding its behaviour.


The festival does not in any way tolerate the taking of or trading of non-prescribed drugs on its site.

Schedule of Events and Timings

In the schedule of events, all items and timings may be subject to last-minute changes at the discretion of the Festival committee. All doors are due to open 30 minutes before the performance is scheduled to commence – except in some cases where a tight changeover takes place – in which case doors will open 15 minutes before the event starts.

Seating in venues

All our venues have a mix of seating and standing areas which are carefully set out. We kindly ask that your own seating is not used in the venues for health and safety reasons. You are however able to use your own seating outside the venues such as in the festival village.

Shuttle bus

Visiting the historical town of Beverley is made easy with a regular shuttle bus service (timetable and details available soon) operated by Acklams, which will run to and from the festival all weekend.
