The Big Stooshie 2012 Event Info

Big Stooshie – Scotland’s Charity Music Festival, is a new 3 day event taking place in May 2012 at The Howe Country Centre in Giffordtown, Fife. The festival will feature over 50 live acts and aims to raise over £100,000 for Help for Heroes and SSAFA Forces Help. The event is organised by a small enthusiastic team who are confident they will attract a capacity crowd of 12,000 people from all over Scotland.

Specific Disabled Facilities
There will be disabled toilets, parking and drop off points.

There will also be trained staff on site to assist disabled people throughout the event,  it is however highly unlikely that personal assistance can be offer on a one-to-one basis throughout a persons attendance at The Big Stooshie. People who require high levels of care that plan to attend unaccompanied should consider this carefully.

Concessions for Disabled People and carers
There will be no concessions available for disabled people or their carers. Tickets must be purchased by every person attending The Big Stooshie.

The Big Stooshie has been organised to raise £100,000 for Help for Heroes and SSAFA Forces Help and many of the people who will benefit from the funds raised suffer from disabilities.  We hope that you understand our position and policy on this matter.

General Accessibility
This event has been organised to support Help For Heroes and SSAFA Forces Help. We welcome and attempt to accommodate people with all levels of disability. Due to the charities involvement,  we feel that The Big Stooshie will be very popular with disabled people.

The event is a music festival and may present similar challenges to other festivals or events for certain disabled people and specially wheelchair users.
