"At Spring Harvest we try to maximise the benefit available from the Event for everyone, including those who have a disability. Each year our experience gained by listening to our guests, along with helpful advances in technology, enables us to introduce, develop or improve ways that allow as many as possible to enjoy the full Spring Harvest experience" (Kay Morgan-Gurr, Disability Advisor to Spring Harvest)
We are committed to making Spring Harvest as accessible as possible so that everyone can get the best out of their stay.
Our provision includes help for people with hearing or with visual difficulties as well as provision for guests who are wheelchair users.
Adults with learning difficulties
During Minehead 1, in conjunction with Prospects, there will be special celebrations and workshops for adults with a learning disability. Each day’s teaching will be delivered through uncomplicated words, sensitive worship and gentle explanation.
During Minehead 3 we will be offering a speech-to-text transcription service in the Big Top during the evening celebrations and the morning meetings.
Get in touch
In order to give you the best service we can it helps us a great deal if we know details of the needs of our guests in advance. This is particularly the case for those requiring braille, large print or audio versions of our resources as, to avoid waste, we can only produce these on request.
We can’t guarantee to provide everything everyone asks for, but we’ll try to accommodate your needs as best we can. Please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Joy on 01825 746509.
Both Butlins resorts have a limited number of fully adapted units of Silver Standard accommodation, offering Self-catering or Dinner, Bed and Breakfast options, which may be suitable for guests with disabilities. These units are usually popular with Spring Harvest guests.

We conform as far as possible to the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act, but face some restrictions due to the temporary nature of the event and limitations of the buildings on each resort.
