Dementia Friendly Space

Wigtown Library, located in the County Buildings, is a recognised Dementia Friendly Space by Alzheimer’s Scotland. It can be used as a quiet space throughout the festival if you’re visiting with someone who has dementia, learning difficulties or you just need a few minutes peace from the buzz.

Hidden Disabilities

Hidden disability sunflower lanyards will be available at the Box Office for the festival. If we can help provide for any additional needs you have, please don't hesitate to contact the box office at 01988 403222.


The lorry park, accessible on South Main Street beside The Old Bank Bookshop, is temporarily allocated as disabled parking space during the festival. If you have a blue badge and you’re struggling to park, please telephone the box office and we’ll try to help.
