Accessibility and further information:

  • Onsite there is an all accessible, all gender bathroom. In addition, there are two other all gender bathrooms.

There is lots of traffic moving along two of the streets the garden sits between, and the space is not fenced. There will be 75 – 100 people at one point during the event, however the space is large, so will not be heavily crowded.
