Access Register

To help us provide the best possible service, we’ve partnered with Nimbus Disability and The Access Card; a universal way of communicating your access requirements as a disabled person. Nimbus Disability is a social enterprise and an organisation run by and for disabled people and is recognised as a lead authority on accessible ticketing in the UK.

To ensure the right tickets are sold to the right people, we require all access bookers to provide us with a Nimbus registration number in order to qualify for any access discounts available at the time of booking. Registering is a three-step process and completely free.

How it works

When your application has been processed successfully, Nimbus will provide you with a unique registration number via email which you can then use to link your access needs into our system.

After you have logged into your Winter Gardens Blackpool account and entered your unique registration number, we simply pull through your requirements directly from Nimbus. When access online bookings go live in the near future, seats associated to your requirements will show on the seating plans when you book tickets for shows and events, where there is availability for those seats.

To book tickets online through Winter Gardens Blackpool, visitors with access requirements must register their requirements via the Access Card. This ensures the right tickets are sold to the right people.

Registering with the Access Card will link your access requirements to your Winter Gardens Blackpool account. This means that once linked, you’ll have access to the right tickets for any future ticket purchase (dependant on availability).

You can register for a free or paid account here

Free registration for the Access Card will permit the card to be recognised for Winter Gardens Blackpool only and only for events at the venue.

INFORMATION, EVIDENCE, DISCOUNTS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISABLED PEOPLE

The Access Card (sometimes referred to as the CredAbility Card or a Nimbus Card) is a card like no other; we translate your disability/impairment into symbols that highlight the barriers you face and the reasonable adjustments you might need.

Think of it as a Disability Passport.

This then informs providers quickly and discreetly about the support you need and may gain you access to things like concessionary ticket prices and complex reasonable adjustments without having to go into loads of personal detail.

It’s all based on your rights under the Equality Act and providers’ responsibilities.

For more information, check out the Access Card website, here.

After registration, the Access Card team will process your registration within 72 hours.

Once your registration has been approved…

  • If you have already reserved tickets, you can call us to complete the purchase. Details will be included in your confirmation email
  • For online purchases, login to your account on Winter Gardens Blackpool navigate to “My Account” and then link your Access Card in the “Accessibility” tab

After you have logged into your account and linked your Access Card & account, we pull through your access requirements and will then show the seats associated to your requirements (dependent on availability)

We’ve chosen to pass the registration scheme onto the same organisation that runs the ‘Access Card’. Nimbus Disability is a social enterprise and an organisation run by and for disabled people and is recognised as a lead authority on accessible ticketing in the UK.

When you register, Nimbus Disability will handle all your information securely and safely without us ever having cause to see the detail behind why you need accessible seating options.

Once you’ve registered, Nimbus will then provide you with a unique registration number which you can then use to link your access needs into our system.

If you are not able to use online forms and would be unable, because of the nature of your impairment, to access online sales you do still need to register. Nimbus will be able to assist with telephone registration on 0330 808 5108.
