VENUE: Action Space

For the final three days of the festival, the all new Action Space inflatable will set up home in Victoria Square, right outside the Council House. All events and screenings are free to enter – just turn up on the day.

Due to the unique nature of Action Space as a venue, the main entrance may not be suitable for those with access requirements and is not wheelchair accessible. However, there is an alternative entrance suitable for wheelchair users and those with mobility restrictions. Please ask the stewards at the venue and they will be happy to assist.
