EVENT ACCESSIBILITY AT RHS MALVERN SPRING FESTIVAL
All the buildings at the showground have ramps and are accessible by wheelchair.
Free parking is widely available at the showground alongside accessible parking for visitors with access needs.
If you’re a blue badge holder please do not purchase Gold parking, instead please use the brown gate for allocated accessible parking on hard standing near the showground entrance.
You’ll find accessible toilets throughout the showground. These are marked on the show plan.
The Mobiloo will be available for all four days of the festival. This is a mobile toilet and personal care facility for people who find it difficult to get out of their wheelchairs unaided, or need the support of a carer to use the facilities fully. The Mobiloo comes complete with an electric hoist, adult-sized changing bench, toilet and wash basin. An attendant is on hand to instruct new users on how the equipment works.
FREE SHUTTLE BUS
There’s a free shuttle bus suitable for persons with access needs from Great Malvern Station to the showground for the RHS Malvern Spring Festival, Royal Three Counties Show, and Malvern Autumn Show.
The shuttle bus runs throughout the day alongside show opening hours. You’ll find the pick up point just outside the station. The return pick up point is at the Red Gate of the showground.
Electric scooters and manual wheelchairs are available for the disabled, elderly, and mobility impaired visitors, courtesy of the Event Mobility Charitable Trust.

ACCESSIBLE TICKETING POLICY
While we do not offer free tickets or concessions for people with access needs, where a carer is required, one carer may be admitted free of charge per ticket-holder with access needs when they pay the normal admission fee. Please call our Accessible Booking Line on 0800 640 5001 to arrange this. Please be aware you may be asked to provide supporting documentation.
For events which we do sell on the day, carers do not need to purchase a ticket in advance, but documentation must be provided at the gate to prove that the ticket holder requires a carer during their visit. Supporting documentation can vary, and may include proof of disability living allowance or documentation from a doctor, anything that provides proof that the ticket-holder requires a carer during their visit to the Showground. If you are unsure and would like to check in advance that the documentation you have is adequate, please call 01684 584900 and we will happily advise.
