Access for disabled and reduced mobility

The Church and most venues are wheelchair accessible, but unfortunately the Town Hall is not. It is an old building with many steps but depending on your disability it may be possible to gain access from the rear of the building with the help of our stewards. Do let us know when booking your tickets if you might need any help at any of our venues. There is a Hearing Loop in the Church and Town Hall.    


The first few rows in the Town Hall and the Church will be reserved for Friends of the Festival.

Events held in St Fimbarrus Church

The wonderful church of St Fimbarrus is an old building with magnificent stonework pillars. As a result, some seats have a restricted view of the stage area. It is advisable to remember this when attending events in the church, particularly those that are in high demand. Seats are reserved for Friends of the Festival however the rest of the seating is on a first-come, first served basis. The stone construction of the church does mean it can get a little cold, so you may wish to bring warm clothing when attending an even. Also for comfort, you may wish to bring a cushion to use on the wooden pew seating.


The du Maurier Festival Society loves dogs, but if at all possible we think it is better if they don’t attend events. If however you absolutely must bring your dog we will accept small well-behaved dogs, but this is not unconditional, as we need to reserve our rights for the comfort of other Festival visitors. 

Toilet facilities

Toilet facilities are available at all venues. The Parish Church, has only one toilet, (up a few steps) but there are also the public conveniences at ground level, just beyond the Church gates (20p). There are toilets within the Town Hall, but, in addition, the public conveniences are situated at the foot of the steps at Ground Level. (20p).
