Sunflower lanyard

1. Rock a Sunflower Lanyard

The Sunflower Lanyard is a discreet way to signal that you have a hidden disability and may need a bit of extra help.  From places to sit, accessible toilets, buggy rides and more the Sunflower Lanyard really can help people offer you support if you're unsure of what's available. Staff are trained to recognise this lanyard and support where needed so we always take ours to any public events, it's a very small accessory that makes a big difference! You can buy a sunflower lanyard online, for more information visit - https://hdsunflower.com/.

Disabled access

2. Ask About Disabled Access and Tickets

When you're booking tickets, give the organisers a call. Not only can they provide you with detailed information on accessible entry to festivals and concerts but seating options, toilets and facilities as well as little things like buggy rides available to save on walking.  The organisers are usually brilliant and proactive when it comes to ensuring you have a seamless experience from start to finish so if in any doubt at all, give them a call!

Vibrant, customisable mobility aid

3. Consider Companion Tickets

If you need someone to come with you in order for you to comfortably be able to navigate and enjoy a festival (or any event), it's always worth asking about companion and carer tickets.  Many events will offer free or discounted tickets for disabled people and their carers. If you haven't already, check out our Disability Benefits Guide for more information on companion and carer benefits available.
