Nozstock wins Outstanding Attitude Award!

Attitude is Everything is a charity that understand that live music is for everyone. They work to improve Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists and the music industry. Their help has been invaluable in improving Nozstock’s accessibility.

2016 saw the launch their inaugural Outstanding Attitude Awards – recognising festivals and venues at the forefront of innovative access for disabled audiences. Nozstock is thrilled to announce we are a winner – and one of only 3 festivals recieving an award.

We won the award thanks to our detailed online access information including photo guides, distances to key locations and a downloadable social story for people with autism and learning disabilities. We are really proud of our online information and are so pleased to be recognised in this way.

Big thanks to Jacob, Paul and all the Attitude Is Everything team plus of course big thumbs up to John and all the Noz crew that helped us win this award. Here’s our site manager, Rob, collecting the award and looking very smug indeed!
