80% Of Deaf And Disabled Music Fans Experience Issues Buying Concert Tickets

The UK’s Attitude is Everything improves Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists and the music industry.

Having begun as a pilot project in 2000, we are now a fully independent charity and part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio of Organisations. They encourage events producers to go beyond the legal obligations set out in the Equality Act and implement best practice, providing a fair and equal service to their Deaf and disabled customers.

Their 2018 State of Access Report examines the barriers faced by Deaf and disabled people when trying to book tickets for live music events, and sets out our vision for ticketing without barriers.

To bring this vision to life, they have convened a far reaching coalition of umbrella organisations, ticketing companies, venues and event companies, who have pledged to work together to remove barriers to ticketing: the Ticketing Without Barriers Coalition.

The coalition will enable members to exchange ideas, issues and solutions, and work towards a single, unified vision for what best practice means when it comes to facilitating access booking for Deaf and disabled people.
