Positive experience through music and arts

Disability Rocks is a community interest company set up in January 2012 and operating as a not for profit organisation. The organisation was founded by Richard and Caroline Sutton who were inspired to create the organisation when their son, Max, was born with a rare chromosome disorder. They saw first-hand the hugely positive impact live music and arts activities had on Max’s life but there were very few inclusive and accessible events being supported.

The sole purpose of the company is to remove barriers that can preclude those with disabilities and additional needs from benefitting from involvement in music and the arts.

Disability Rocks creates festivals that combine a fantastic line-up of performances and events with locations carefully selected and configured to provide easy access and a wide range of enhanced specialist facilities in relaxed, entertaining and harmonious environment. There is also a commitment to showcasing the talent of artists and musicians who themselves have disabilities.
