Many festival venues operate a disability equality scheme. This is kept under review, taking into account the views of visitors and others. Comments and suggestions are therefore welcome and may be directed to the disability librarian at the Bodleian Library (for the Divinity School and Weston Library) and the custodian at the Sheldonian Theatre. For other college and university venues please contact the domestic bursar or department administrator.
To ensure the safe evacuation of wheelchair users in case of emergency, it may occasionally be necessary to limit the number of wheelchair users at a given event. Evac-chairs are provided and duty volunteers trained to assist. A safety briefing for all festival-goers is provided at the start of each event.

For events at the Bodleian Library, Weston Library, Lincoln College, Oxford Martin School and the Sheldonian Theatre, disabled badge holder designated parking is available in Broad Street. Designated parking is available in Beaumont Street for Worcester College, Cohen Quad and the Ashmolean, and in St Giles for St Cross College.
