At New Horizon we aim to make our event accessible to all. It is our hope that everyone will feel free and able to join us as we meet together during the week.

NH2023 Special Celebration

For people with intellectual disabilities

Wednesday 9 August – 11:30 to 13:00

Venue: M102 Octagon Balcony (Co-Lab Lab)

This is a relaxed time of interactive worship, prayer and Bible teaching using an easy to read version of the Bible, as well as some fun and drama.

Family and friends of folk with intellectual disabilities are welcome to join the celebration.


The SU SEN P1-7+ is a specific track for children with Special Needs. The three sections will all be learning about the same things and the programme is tailored to each section. There are limited spaces available for this year’s pilot post-primary programme. Registration for the Special Needs track is solely available online and needs to be done in advance.  Scripture Union will then be in touch during the month prior to New Horizon.


There are disabled parking bays in each of the University car parks for cars displaying the official Blue Badge. The car park next to the Main Tent is available for Blue Badge Holders at £2 per morning.  There is no evening charge.  Please note that to gain access to this car park you must register with New Horizon to obtain a pass and display this together with your Blue Badge to gain access.  

There is a drop-off point within the car park and close to the entrance for those who do not have a Blue Badge but have a mobility issue. Please visit the information desk to apply.


Signing will be provided during the Bible Teaching and Evening Celebrations. Please ensure that those requiring this facility are seated in the ‘Signing Area’ of the Main Stage.

Visually impaired

If you require large print or Braille of the songs please contact the New Horizon office in advance.

We continually review the way we deliver all aspects of New Horizon in order to meet the needs of as many people as possible. We welcome any feedback and recommendations about how we can help make the event more accessible. Please feel free to contact Debbie and Rosemary at
