Event description
Lookfest is an accessible summer festival for visually impaired young people and their families. Created by VI people, for VI people!

About this Event

"Our girls had so many accessible new experiences. I've never seen our eldest so free and just enjoying being a child." Mum, Kate

LookFest will take place on July 17th - 20th, in the great outdoors and under canvass in rural Herefordshire.

This festival is run by LOOK UK, a charity that aims to empower young visually impaired (VI) people to thrive.

We want all visually impaired young people to have the same opportunities as everyone else to get down and dirty with nature, roam free and have fun in the outdoors.

Come and muck in!
