Where do we live?



Castleford precinct is very flat, the area can be easily navigated around without having to cross any steps or inclines. A mapped area of the event including accessible toilets can be found here (a link to the site map will be available here for you to view soon).

Carlton Street – This is the main festival site and where most activities will take place, the street is easily accessible and completely flat.

Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre – Shopping area, rest spaces, cafés, restaurants and accessible toilets.

Castleford Library & Museum – Quiet rest space, children’s craft activities and accessible facilities.

Our friendly team of staff, security, first aiders and contractors will be on hand to offer any assistance. You can find us in ither Hi-Viz or Wakefield Council uniform, look for ‘EVENT STAFF’ on our backs!

Please note this is not a ticketed event and therefore we cannot confirm what the site capacity will be on the day. The crowds generally gather close to the stalls and break out areas can be found on the precinct with benches to rest. Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre will be open during the event where welfare facilities and a quiet space for a coffee in a café can be found.

Toilets – A portable disabled access toilet unit will be located on the precinct next to the former Marks & Spencer’s store on Florence Street, however if you prefer, full accessible toilets can be found within the Carlton Lanes shopping centre building. Unfortunately, there is no nearby changing place – the closest to the event would be located at Xscape.

Parking – The closest and most convenient disabled parking to the precinct is Aire Street (WF10 1JL), Bridge Street (WF10 1JP) and Castlefields (WF10 5BH) car park.

BSL Interpreter – We will be welcoming British Sign Language Interpreters to Roman Street Theatre Show – please stay tuned on this page for the BSL times.

Should you need medical attention please inform a member of staff or security on site, they will direct you to the medical tent or request for a medic to come to you.

Unfortunately, we do not have any secure storage for medicines on site.
