Join us in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside for a fun-filled weekend with the #LookFamily at LookFest 2020.

After the huge success of LookFest 2019, we are doing it all over again in July 2020.

Join us in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside for a fun-filled weekend with the #LookFamily.

From forest school to festival art, sand pits and slip-n-slides, circus skills to Ceilidh dancing. A full programme of activities will be announced soon.

The LookFest site is made accessible with guide ropes, tactile markers and audio clues. Hand-made tactile maps are dotted around the site in key areas, and our friendly team of volunteers are always happy to help.

Meet The #Look Family

Our team of hard-working volunteers includes fully sighted volunteers and VI Look mentors.

Our mentors are VI young adults who are committed to sharing their experience to provide role models for their younger peers.

"Our girls had so many accessible new experiences. I’ve never seen our eldest so free and just enjoying being a child."
"My children learned how they could be more independent. My daughter who is visually impaired did her first Ceilidh dancing, and she has since been demonstrating at home. My son learnt how to saw."​
“It was lovely to feel so safe. The fact that the site was so accessible, and that everyone was so friendly, made a huge difference. My daughter felt really comfortable and was happy walking on her own.”
"The bell-tents are so comfortable. It’s one less stress having to think about bringing all our camping gear when we can just book the glamping and turn up to have the tents already set up for us."
"Meeting VI role models was the highlight of the festival. It had such an empowering effect on my VI daughter. She doesn’t often meet other VI people, and they were so positive and assertive – fantastic!"
"It was such a positive experience for the whole family. My children could relax, be free, make friends with other visually impaired children and meet truly inspirational role models. I could really feel a strengthening of their self-esteem and confidence. There is no other event that can provide this."
