At Satellites, we’re committed to bringing people together, doing everything we can to promote a culture of inclusion and accessibility for everyone at our event. Here are just a few of the things we're putting in place to make sure that it is...
Free carer ticket If you think you’ll need a carer with you then you’ll be able to book this for free. This can be done online – just select carer instead of adult when selecting a ticket and the ticket price will automatically be zeroed. We’ll need the young person’s parent/guardian to fill in a form prior to the event to detail anything we need to be aware of and the role of the carer. The carer will have the same access to the event as any other guest.
On-site support We’ll have a dedicated team who will be available throughout the day and evening to ensure you have everything you need, and to help give advice, support and assistance where possible. Our volunteer team will also have training before the event to make sure they can assist when needed.
A quiet space to take time out of main sessions We know that gathering in a big, dark venue with lots of other people may become overwhelming at times for some people, so we’ll make sure that there are quieter spaces around the site for those who need to take some time out. We’d also recommend bringing ear defenders to wear if noise stimulation is tricky or triggering. Please note that while we have a small supply of these, demand will far outstrip our ability to offer them.
Accessible site layout and wheelchair-accessible bathroom facilities The showground that Satellites is hosted on has level ground throughout and a concrete path around the whole site – though the campsite and some venues are situated on grass. Please let us know if you need help with access on the softer ground or require wheelchair-accessible bathroom facilities on the additional needs form and our team can look at allocating your youth group camping space in the most appropriate area.
Gender-neutral facilities For those who would prefer use of a gender-neutral bathroom, these will be available and signposted. There are unisex shower facilities around the site.
Charging points If you’re bringing an electric mobility scooter or wheelchair, please let us know in advance on the additional needs form and we can work with you to make suitable arrangements for charging these devices.
Medication storage You’ll need to use your own facilities on your campsite to store medication so please factor this in to your booking.
