The website search function is correctly titled but is not labelled. This fails WCAG 2.1A success criteria 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels) and 3.3.2 (Labels or Instructions). We plan to fix this by September 2020.
The What’s On page date search function is correctly titled but is not labelled. This fails WCAG 2.1A success criteria 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels) and 3.3.2 (Labels or Instructions). We plan to fix this by September 2020.

Images on Event pages do not have suitable alternative text. This fails WCAG 1.1.1A success criterion (Non-text Content). We plan to fix this by September 2020.
Some video and audio content embedded within the website to not have captions and audio descriptions.

TICKET PURCHASE WEBSITE
The Ticket Purchase Website template styling contains a link text colour with very low contrast to the background colour. This fails WCAG 2.1A 1.4.3 success criterion (Contrast (Minimum)). We plan to fix this by April 2020.
The Event Listings page promotional code and date range filter functions do not have corresponding labels. This fails WCAG 2.1A 2.4.6 / 3.3.2 success criterion (Headings and Labels / Labels or Instructions). This is a limitation of the third party component which we will aim to fix by September 2020.
