Accessibility & Inclusivity
Here at 2000trees we are committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion at our Festival, rejecting all types of unlawful discrimination.
We recognise that for us to provide the best festival possible, our workforce and line up should be representative of all sections of our community and we are working hard to ensure this is the case.
We are committed to providing goods, services and facilities in a non-discriminatory manner. We work hard to remove barriers ensuring all sections of our community are able to attend our Festival.
The 2000trees team work hard to create an environment free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination, promoting a culture of dignity and respect for all. We recognise and value difference in our workforce and customers.
We take seriously complaints of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination by fellow employees, customers, suppliers or the public.
We recognise we have a responsibility to take care of all those who visit our festival, be it as an employee or customer and take this responsibility very seriously.
At 2000trees festival, we believe that all events should be accessible and inclusive to all. To achieve this, we are continuing our work with Attitude is Everything and will continue to make our site as accessible as possible.
