Digital Accessibility Statement 2021

This Accessibility Statement, prepared on 16 March 2021, applies to the website run by St. Magnus International Festival, (the Festival) and to the Festival’s FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram apps.  The Statement will be reviewed annually.  The Festival is committed to making its website and apps compliant in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

The Festival wants as many people as possible to be able to access and use these digital resources, and we intend them to provide:

  • the ability to easily change screen colours, contrast levels and fonts to suit the needs of each individual user
  • zoom in to 300% without the content spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the screen using keyboard controls only
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website content using current screen reader software

The Festival has designed the text on these resources to be as easily useable and understandable as possible.

The website and apps are partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. We know some parts of the website are not fully accessible:

  • the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window
  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • live video streams do not have captions
  • some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard
  • you cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader
  • there’s a limit to how far you can magnify the map on our ‘contact us’ page

If you have a disability, you can access advice on making your device easier to use at AbilityNet

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of our website, but if you need information on the website in a different format; like accessible PDF; large print; easy read; audio recording; or braille, or if you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, then please contact the Festival Manager, Charlotte Rendall at: or call 01856 871445
