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 – assistance can be provided where necessary.
Disabled parking spaces for blue badge holders are available on site (subject to space) via Gate 2.
The site includes disability friendly toilets.
Disabled campers will be able to park next to their camping accommodation in a reserved area – please note, blue badges are to be shown at all times.


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.), unless they are registered assistance dogs.
  • 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.
