Euan’s Guide, the disabled access review charity, has announced awards for a show and venue that are doing something outstanding to include disabled audiences at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
People are asked to vote for their favourite accessible performance or venue, via social media or by visiting: www.euansguide.com/FringeAward.
The winning show* will receive a prize of £1,000 with a runner up awarded £500. There will be a further prize of £500 for a venue** with excellent accessibility.
People can vote for any show or venue and, once voting closes on Sunday 16th August, those with the most votes will go through to the final round to be judged by a panel of disabled people.
Euan MacDonald, co-founder of Euan’s Guide, said:
“We’re very excited to be launching this award at this year’s Festival Fringe. Promoting the accessibility of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is very important to us and we are keen to see as many visitors as possible having a great experience. We are sure the standard will be very high and I wish the best of luck to everyone involved.”
Euan’s Guide invites visitors to Edinburgh to share their reviews of disabled access on EuansGuide.com to help inform other disabled festival goers.
