Should you have mobility or pain issues that prevent you from boarding a bus that is not wheelchair accessible, please indicate this in your access requirements when booking your ticket. We will contact you about more suitable alternative arrangements.

Parking and Outside space

The venue has around 60 parking spaces, including 6 disabled parking spaces. The entire parking area is within 30-40 metres from the hotel’s main entrance. The view from the outside is that of beautiful, relaxing countryside.

Inside the Venue

Newton Hotel has outside ramps for access. All doors are large enough to allow wheelchairs to pass through and easy to open. The rooms allocated to us will be clearly signed and are at the ground-floor level. They are all placed close to each other and toilets (including accessible toilets) are also close-by. Gender neutral toilets are available.

Our workshop spaces are reasonably separated from the rest of the hotel and will be of exclusive use to us. We will have two workshop rooms plus a central meeting area. A quiet space area is also available.


Any handouts or printed information provided by workshops will be available in large print on request and/or available digitally. If you require large print please add this to your form when booking tickets on Eventbright or get in touch via email.

All signs and posters for the event will be in large print on the day.

BSL interpreters will be available if booked before the 11th October. If you require an interpreter, let us know when booking your ticket.

Please note when you are booking if you have any access, language or dietary requirements that you would like us to take note of and we will do our best to meet your needs.

Priority Queuing

Should there be a queue at registration and you are not able to wait in it, please come directly to the front to the priority chairs and we will register you as soon as possible. Should you need any assistance during the event please contact the registration desk.
