RAREfest18 and the Guildhall will cater for the needs of all our participants, including those with specific accessibility requirements or disabilities.

From the Market Square, the Guildhall is the large building with a clock face, crest and balcony. Look out for the RAREfest banner!
BLUE BADGE PARKING
There are car parks nearby at The Grand Arcade, Park Street and Queen Anne. If your car displays a disability badge you can use the reserved spaces in either car park. There are also a limited number of designated free on-street parking spaces in Guildhall Street, Hobson Street, Jesus Lane, Kings Parade, Peas Hill, Regent Street, St Andrews Street and Church Street. Alternatively, all ‘Pay and Display’ and residents’ parking bays are free if you are a blue badge holder.
You can contact Cambridgeshire County council on 01223 717111 for further information or check their website for further information about free blue badge parking.

Peas Hill entrance
The Level access entrance is on Peas Hill where there is a lift to the Halls where RAREfest is being held. This entrance is just left of the Tourist Information Centre entrance.
There is a fairly long corridor from this lift to the Halls. The Peas Hill entrance is accessible by car/taxi for drop off.
ENTRY option For those with requiring lift access/less walking
Guildhall Street entrance
There is also a lift on the Guildhall Street side of the building (opposite the side of ‘Yo Sushi’) but there are 4 steps from street level.
If you can manage a few steps but not walk a long distance, we suggest you come to the Guildhall Street side as opposed to Peas Hill as when exiting the lift, the entrance to the Halls is closer.
