Accessibility Policy


We want everyone to enjoy Humber Street Sesh, so we try our best to make the festival as accessible as we can for all. This is partly about the facilities but also about our attitude. We want to get things right for everyone who attends.

So please get in touch if you want to discuss any access requirements and we’ll do our best to help.

Getting Around

Although there are some cobbled streets that wheelchair users need to be aware of, the site is mostly on one level, and we have the benefit of the entire site being on hard surfaces.

One notable exception to the flat-level access is The Stage at the Dock which has an amphitheatre setting. The top of the amphitheatre provides good views of the stage, although the steps to the lower area are very steep. The lower level can be accessed by a small lift.

The festival site can be accessed by using the Liberty Lane High Street Underpass and the pedestrian crossing from Lowgate/ Market Place to Queen Street which has wider access to cross the road.

You can also use Humber Dock Street via the Murdoch Connection over Castle Street; however, this is the busiest of the entry points.

Parking and Drop-off Point

We are a city centre event, and as such we are not able to provide car parking. We advise attendees to use public transport, cycle or walk. If you need to drive on the day, please consider carsharing.

There are several public car parks near the event arena including Hull City Council public car parks, Blackfriargate Multi-Story and Princes Quay Shopping Centre.


We have several temporary accessible toilets positioned around the festival site. There is also a public accessible toilet on Minerva Terrace which can be accessed with your Radar Key. Please see the festival site map for accessible toilet locations.

Deaf Access

Unfortunately we do not have BSL interpreters at this event.

Things to be aware of

Please be aware that various lighting is used at Humber Street Sesh including strobe lighting. If you have any questions about where the lighting is and when it will be used, please get in touch with us beforehand.

Assistance dogs are welcome at Humber Street Sesh. Please make sure your dog wears an official jacket and harness when entering the festival site.

Tickets and Passes

We understand the importance of Personal Assistants and operate a policy of free carer passes with purchased tickets. Disabled visitors who receive PIP, DLA, or Attendance Allowance or who are registered as partially sighted can get one companion ticket for their Personal Assistant. We will also consider issuing tickets for Personal Assistants for anyone who is deaf.

Free passes for Personal Assistants need to be arranged in advance of the festival by contacting

Support from the Stewards

We have a large number of stewards in each area of the festival. If you are struggling to find anything or need some assistance on the day please speak to a steward and they will do their best to help.

All Event Stewards and Welfare Team wear hi-viz bibs so you can easily identify them.

Should you at any point need a chill-out area to take a break from the sun or the crowds, please ask a steward to contact the welfare team. See the map for location points.
