Little Wander is committed to continually improving accessibility at all our events.
We are grateful to Creative Wales for providing additional support to the Machynlleth Comedy Festival in its efforts to enhance overall accessibility for attendees.
As well as undertaking a full accessibility audit of the website to identify gaps and make improvements, including better signposting accessibility features at the festival, we are pleased to introduce the following new measures this year:
Dedicated Accessibility Email
For any access queries in advance of the festival, we have created a dedicated contact email address:
This email address can also be used during the festival weekend along with the Access Information Point.
To contact the box office with ticketing queries you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
For more venue specific access information, check out our venue pages here.
Hynt is a national access scheme that works across arts venues in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors with an impairment or specific access requirement, and their Carers or Personal Assistants. We are part of the Hynt scheme as we believe it offers our disabled customers the very best practice in fair ticketing policy and accessibility.
Hynt members need to contact email@example.com with their membership number before purchasing tickets so we can set you up on our box office system accordingly.
Access Information Point
Throughout the festival weekend, we have created an Access Information Point next to the Box Office (now located within the Leisure Centre) with a dedicated staff member to answer any queries, provide feedback or suggest improvements surrounding access at the event.
You can find the location of the Access Information Point / Box Office on the map on page XX.

Relaxed Social Space
As many areas of the festival can become quite crowded, the Access Information Point will also offer an adjoining relaxed social space for those in search of a bit of calm away from the crowds. A chance to grab a seat, browse the programme or just take time out.
