Access is extremely important to us at Tramlines and we believe all events should be accessible for everyone to enjoy.
In 2019 one of our main goals was to strive towards being certified by Attitude is Everything a disability-led charity that improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music. We were delighted to be awarded their Bronze certificate.
Following 2021’s event, Tramlines was awarded ‘Gold Status’ by Attitude is Everything for its commitment to making the event accessible. 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.
