Disability Policy


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

So please get in touch if you want to discuss any particular 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 Humber Dock Stage which has an amphitheatre setting. The top of the amphitheatre can provide good views of the stage, though the steps to the lower area are very steep. The lower level can be accessed by a lift.

The Festival Site by using the Liberty Lane High Street Underpass. The pedestrian crossing from Market Place (close to King Billy) to Queen Street which has wider access to cross the road.

Parking and Drop-off Point

We are a city centre event, and as such we are not able to provide car parking. However there are a number of Public Car Parks close to the Event Arena including Princes Quay Shopping centre and within close proximity of The Deep.


We have a number of disabled access toilets positioned around the festival site adjacent with Festival Toilets. There is also a Public Disability Toilet on Minerva Terrace. We also have a Changing facility.

Deaf Access

We unfortunately 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 the use of strobe lighting. If you have any worries about when or where these lights may be, then please get in touch with us beforehand.

Assistance Dogs are welcome at Humber Street Sesh. We ask that official jackets and harness please be worn upon entrance and when working.

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, Attendance Allowance or who are registered 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.
