The organisers of Birmingham Pride wish to make the festival inclusive for ALL and recognise the need for easy access throughout the event for our disabled community. There are various features in place to cater for those with accessibility needs who are coming to Birmingham Pride:
ENTERING PRIDE & DISABLED PARKING:
Priority entrance and parking for the disabled is situated on Kent Street, by The Fountain. Please also refer to the Main Site Map for a larger overview of where this is located.
There is also Disabled Parking in The Arcadian Centre on Bromsgrove St in Birmingham.
All the entertainment areas have disabled toilet facilities on site. At each area, there will be stewards and security guards as well an general Birmingham Pride staff who will be able to assist you in pointing out the toilets, and also escorting you through the crowd to reach them, should you require any assistance. Outside entertainment areas, there will also be road level disabled toilets available.
ACCESS TO THE MAIN ENTERTAINMENT AREAS :
There will be ramp access to all of the entertainment areas at Birmingham Pride. There is also a disabled viewing gallery situated at The Nightingale Main Stage, however this is available on a first come first served basis, so grab your spot before it gets too busy!
There's a huge choice of venues to take advantage of throughout the Pride weekend - all of them have their own accessibility policy. Some offer elevators, as well as ramps, disabled toilets and easy access to the outdoor and smoking areas. If there is a particular venue you are interested, give them a call directly to find out how they can assist you. Click here for a full list of venues with contact details.
