Plan Your Visit



All venues have stewards who will be happy to help with wheelchairs or pushchairs. Please inform a steward if your disability requires a seat with extra leg-room. When booking tickets, please inform the Box Office that you are a wheelchair user so our stewards can be ready to assist you.


The Appledore Book Festival welcomes everyone and is keen to help those with disabilities. If you have any queries please contact the Appledore Book Festival Box Office at Docton Court Gallery on 01237 424 949.  If you require a chaperone and are registered disabled, you can purchase a carer’s ticket at a 50% discount when you purchase a full-price ticket.
