Access Performances at MIF19

This coming Saturday (16 March), it’s Disabled Access Day all over the UK. This annual day celebrates venues that provide good access for everyone and creates opportunities for disabled people to try out an activity or visit somewhere new. For a full schedule of events, check out the Disabled Access Day website.

And speaking of visiting somewhere new… MIF19 is still just over three months away and although we’re not part of Disabled Access Day this week, we’re already working hard to make our Festival venues as accessible as possible. We aim to be a truly open and accessible Festival, and we make every effort to meet everybody’s access needs.

As part of our programme launch, we recently announced nearly 30 accessible performances and tours for MIF19 –there’s a full list below.
