There is an on-site licensed café selling delicious lunches, snacks and drinks from an all-new menu featuring artisan sandwiches, salads, hot dishes and cakes.
There is ramped access to the front and rear of the building with parking for Blue Badge holders at the front entrance on Hathersage Road. There are accessible toilets.
The GNCCF is accessible on the ground floor only, with hand-cranked accessibility lifts into the exhibitor stand areas within the pools. These lifts are wheel on straight ahead but exit on the pool floor to the right or left, so wheelchair users will need to be able to manouvre themselves or have assistance in order to exit the side ramps. Please note that there are limitations on size of wheelchairs/powerchairs/scooters due to the need to turn within the lift. Manual wheelchairs and powerchairs are fine but scooters do not have the turning circle, mainly due to length and the fact they have four wheels. Car or boot scooters which typically break down to put in the boot of a car, are suitable for the lifts. We do have a wheel chair to borrow on site should this be required. Stewards are stationed near the lifts to assist with access and operation.
Unfortunately, a small number of exhibtors are upstairs and Victoria Baths does not have a lift so we regret that there is no disabled access to these areas. We will state on the website who is exhibiting upstairs and, if you wish to see their work, we will endeavour to assign you with a fair steward who will video their stand(s) and bring any work you wish to look at to you, with no obligation to buy. If this personal service is of interest please email so we can arrange this for you in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you just turn up on the day, please request this service at the front desk and we will do our best to arrange it during your visit.
