Disabled and Carer Discount Code
We are committed to ensure disabled persons can access and purchase tickets online without issue. To avoid misuse of the tickets purchase process we request an email in advance of making a ticket purchase to request our disabled and carer discount code which can be applied at the checkout.
This enables us to manage the process and monitor the ticket sales to prevent abuse of the discounted sales as we want to ensure disabled persons and eligible carers receive the discount and that the required facilities and services are properly provided for all attendees.
If you require the support of an essential companion please email us your request as we consider this on a case-by-case basis again to prevent misuse and abuse of this request.
We can offer essential companions a free entry ticket to the event if the criteria is met. This is to acknowledge the responsibility of the companion to provide support to a disabled customer in exchange for a free ticket of entry to the event.
Our criteria for essential companion eligibility is seen as someone who provides a customer with a level of support that without which they would be unable to safely enjoy our event or services on the same level as non-disabled customers.
To be eligible for the essential companion free ticket we request evidence of eligibility to avoid any misrepresentation of customers needs.
We reserve the right to review an application without the recommended evidence on a case-by-case basis.
