Lancashire Cricket reserves the right to request “proof of disability” in some cases. Such proof may include:
- Receipt of the Disability Living Allowance (mid-rate care OR high rate mobility component).
- Receipt of either the Severe Disablement Allowance or Attendance Allowance
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Allowance
- Blind or partially sighted registration certificate – BD8 Certificate
- A personal letter from your GP, community nurse or social worker
Provision of a free companion/personal assistant ticket
Where a supporter would find it unreasonably difficult or impossible to access the services offered, the Club will allow the supporter to bring an companion/personal assistant free of charge. This meets the conditions of the Club providing a “reasonable adjustment”/auxiliary service under the Equality Act (formerly the DDA). Any supporter who can supply one of the “proof of disability” documents will automatically qualify for the free ticket (if requested). Supporters without such proof will be considered on an individual case and may be asked to complete a ‘Proof of Disability Registration Form.
Parking for disabled people is available on site on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is a high demand on the day for accessible parking our stewards will do their best to assist you in finding a suitable space.
A limited number of permits for Blue Badge Holders are available for purchase from the Ticket and Membership Office. However, a small number of spaces for Blue Badge Holders will be retained for those attending on the day.

There is level access around site; however, if you encounter any difficulties please ask the nearest steward for assistance.
