Linton Children’s Book Festival promotes equality of opportunity for people with different needs.

Our venue is wheelchair-friendly and has disabled toilets on site. Please ask stewards for the best place to sit. We also have disabled parking, located at the front of the college and you can email ahead of time if you would like any assistance.

Various events will be relaxed sessions, suitable for children with sensory needs. You can find them here. We will also have a quiet room for children to go if they feel overwhelmed.

Our programme can be emailed to you in an enlargeable Microsoft Word format so as to be more easily read by text-to-speech software.

If you would like to ask any questions or want to discuss any specific access needs, please email
