10-12 March 2017
Due to popular demand they have extended the dates so more people can get involved and more places can be visited. In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good access and created opportunities for people to try something new. The day was about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists in places, such as touch tours, relaxed performances, sensory experiences, level access and of course a warm welcome! Often venues don’t shout enough about their existing accessibility. Disabled Access Day is an opportunity for you to showcase what you have! Places and organisations are able to use the weekend as a focal point in many ways, such as rising staff awareness, reviewing existing accessibility and talking with visitors by exploring what works well. Don’t forget to list on Euan’s Guide (disabled access reviews from disabled people and their friends and families) as well!
What can you do?
The important thing is to enjoy your event. As the website states; ‘Don’t worry about the number of visitors you get on the day, we know if one individual gets a new and worthwhile experience then you have achieved perhaps more than what you think.’
