Frequently Asked Questions
I am coming to Glastonbury by train. Why does the rail company recommend Castle Cary while you suggest Bristol?
Can we bring children to the Symposium?
If you have friends in or near Glastonbury with whom you can leave the kids, of course, this might be best on the whole!
Can I bring my child on the coach tour?
However, we don’t make a hard and fast rule because the Symposium attracts all kinds of special people and occasionally some of them are young ones. If you are in any doubt, please feel free to discuss the matter with us. Contact us here.
Do you offer concessions/facilities for disabled people?
We can happily accommodate wheelchairs in the Town Hall, with entry gained from the side of the hall rather than the main entrance (where there are steps). Toilet facilities for the disabled are available on the same level as the main hall, in the corridor just outside the auditorium rear doors. Please inform us in advance if you need to bring a wheelchair and we will be able to leave a space in the main seating on request.
Can we film at the Symposium?
We also ask that attendees do not take still photographs during a presentation, as this is very distracting to the audience and may also contravene copyrighted images on the main screen. Photography in-between lectures and in the stalls room, cafe and corridors is fine, but please bear in mind the privacy of other attendees.
If you are a TV crew or production company wishing to film elements of the Symposium for documentaries or other professional purposes, please contact us directly and we will consider your requests, but we always insist that any filming we agree to must be discreet and should not in any way inconvenience or impede our attendees, front of house staff or technical crew.
If I book in advance but then find I get ill, can I have a refund?
Will I need a car to get around Glastonbury?
Is food available?
Where can I find accommodation?
Please note that we never book accommodation for attendees, although we may give friendly advice where appropriate.
Do you have a mailing list?
