About the site
As an open-air event held in the countryside, there are some limitations on site brought up by the land. Starry Skies is based on a small and intimate site. All accessible camping & glamping spots are located very close to Centre Camp. This is the hub of Starry Skies, with our Starry Stage & bar, food court and various workshop tents.
In wet and muddy weather it might be the case that some people have problems with access when using wheelchairs (particularly powered chairs). We will of course do our best to keep everyone moving, but please do be aware that this is an open air event in a grassy field and we cannot guarantee the ground conditions.
While there is a hardcore track that runs through the site, it needs to be noted that this is a vehicle route and attendees will need to keep to the grass where the entertainment areas are. There are some natural hills and inclines across site, however the main hub of entertainment is relatively flat. The main entrance to the woodland is at the bottom of a slight decline and within the woods the ground is undulating and has some tree root coverage.
Starry Skies does have some wheelbarrows to help move gear from the parking areas, these must be returned once you’re done to allow others to use them.
