If you are unable to attend the Festival without the assistance of a Personal Assistant you can also apply for one of our complimentary PA Tickets. Customers wishing to apply for a PA ticket must purchase their own ticket in the October sale but not one for their Personal Assistant.
If applying for a Personal Assistant (PA) ticket and the access facilities you must be able to provide one of the following forms of supporting documentation;
• Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility.
• (Lower Rate is only accepted if applying just for the access facilities)
• Receipt of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
• Nimbus Access Card – + 1 category requirement for PA applications – www.accesscard.org.uk
• Armed forces Independent payment
• War Disablement Pension
• D/deaf or blind registration
• Medical professionals letter
All documents provided must show your full name and be dated from no older than 2018. Once we have checked and processed your application your documentation will be destroyed.
It is also mandatory that a form of photo ID is included with your forms. This could be a passport, driving licence or concessionary travel card. Please refer to www.pass-scheme.org.uk for more info. Again this document will be destroyed once your application has been processed.
Please note Blue Badges cannot be accepted as forms of photo ID.
HOW TO APPLY
If you can provide the supporting documentation required, you should only buy your ticket in the October sale.
Once you have paid your £50 deposit you can then request the Access Application Form. This will be available from the Access Team from November.
You can request this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note only ticket holders (customers aged 13 and over) can apply for the PA Ticket Scheme.
PA’s attending through this scheme need to be 18 years old by the start of the festival.
The deadline to apply for the PA Scheme and/ or Access Facilities will be Friday 20th March.
Please note – due to the high demand for these facilities we do recommend customers completing the form and returning this to the Access Team as soon as they can.
Applications received after the deadline cannot be accepted.
Please Note: If there is a resale in the Spring the PA Scheme would reopen to anyone that successfully gets a ticket in this resale only.
