Access Pass

We want everyone to be able to access and enjoy the Edinburgh International Festival.

Our Access Pass is designed to improve the booking experience for D/deaf and disabled audience members.

What is the Access Pass?

Signing up to the Access Pass allows our box office and venue staff to know your access needs so that we can offer you the best possible experience.

The Access Pass allows customers to book specific tickets and events online. These include:

  • Booking a wheelchair space
  • Booking a free essential companion ticket
  • Booking a seat with the best view for British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted performances
  • Booking a ticket for a Touch Tour, which complement our audio described performances
  • Booking any of the above ticket types as a caregiver on behalf of someone else – just let us us know when signing up the name of the person for whom you'll be making bookings

After signing up to our Access Pass, you will also receive our brochure and Access Guide with detailed information about venue access and accessible performances.
