Coveted ‘Gold’ status for Accessibility awarded
Tramlines has been awarded ‘Gold Status’ by Attitude is Everything for its commitment to making the event accessible!
Attitude is Everything connects Deaf and disabled people with music and event industries to improve access together. In order to achieve this status the festival committed to a ‘Charter of Best Practice’, an accreditation framework covering all aspects of live event accessibility, recognised by the UK Live as the industry standard.
We know that to truly champion accessibility and be one of the industry standard leaders, we need to improve year on year and continue to meet the needs and requirements of all our customers. This is something we are fully committed to do.
A spokesperson for Attitude is Everything said;
‘Tramlines signed up to the Attitude is Everything charter in 2019 to begin their journey making one of Sheffield’s largest live music events accessible to all. Despite the challenging circumstances of the pandemic including a 2020 cancellation, it has been fantastic to see the incredible development and hard work the team has done to fast track their status to Gold in 2021. Tramlines have truly made Accessibility a priority, from implementing our recommendations and engaging with staff training around access to providing fantastic customer service onsite. We cannot wait to see this amazing festival further improve their access provision and hopefully achieve Platinum status in 2022.’
I’m immensely proud of the team for their hard work in achieving gold status with attitude is everything, making the festival as accessible as we can is something we all strive for and we’re aiming for platinum next.’
