We don’t accept CEA cards. We don’t have anything against them, they serve a really useful purpose for some people. However they’re not quite Sundown enough for us. Actually we think they’re a bit restrictive. They’re only available to people in receipt of specific benefits or if they’re registered blind, they only last a year and you have to pay £6 to have one. Oh and children under 8 can’t have one.
We think this may exclude some people and sometimes someone may need a companion for an outdoor event when you wouldn’t for an indoor event. Also some illnesses can happen rapidly and applying for a CEA card might not be high on someone’s to do list. If you think you need a companion to attend an event then you can get one from us without a CEA card. Simply book your ticket as normal then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your reference number and we’ll be in touch with a companion ticket.
