Imaginate has a strong commitment to accessibility and equality.

All our events and opportunities are open to people from all backgrounds and abilities.

During our festival:

  • The festival brochure is available in large print or in various computer formats. 

  • All our venues are family friendly and wheelchair accessible. For detailed information and reviews, check Euan’s Guide at

  • Children (and adults) with additional support needs can attend any of our performances but some shows may be more suitable than others for those with complex needs. If you would like some advice, please contact us.

  • We are a family friendly festival. Parents/ Guardians are welcome to bring babes in arms (under 1 year of age) to performances at our festival. These are free but ticketed. The exception to that rule is when a show is specifically targeted at babies in which case, they will require a normal child ticket.
