SITE DESCRIPTION

Shindig Weekender is held at Gilcombe Farm, the farm is an active dairy farm so comes with all the challenges that farmland has in regards to uneven surfaces and moving around. We install temporary trackway into the majority of the site. There is trackway to within 50 metres of all the main venues but the final access will be across grass. The majority of the grounds are uneven, there are slopes, and a variety of different gradients. Access can be challenging at times, particularly in bad weather conditions. If it rains, it may get muddy and access around the site may become very difficult. We do not offer any internal transport due to the limitations of moving around the site. 

PERSONAL ASSISTANT TICKET 

Customers requiring assistance throughout the festival are entitled to one free pass for their Personal Assistant. Please note that the customer requiring assistance must have proof of their ticket purchase . If you are unable to attend without use of a Personal Assistant, and are in receipt of one or more of the following, Shindig are happy to issue a Personal Assistant ticket at no additional cost: 

  • Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility
