Ingliston Revival is committed to making everyone’s experience an enjoyable one. However, please do consider that the festival is an outdoor event with grass fields and grounds with gradients/uneven surfaces, whilst we have made a great effort to provide facilities to accommodate for this there will inevitably be some areas that are hard to navigate.

Disabled visitors will have access to disabled toilets across the festival site located in a variety of areas. These facilities will be restricted for disabled visitors only.

Ingliston Revival welcomes all assistance dogs which include Hearing Dogs, Canine Partners, Dogs for the Disabled and Guide Dogs

We strongly recommend that you pre-purchase tickets so that you can use the fast-track entry and be guaranteed access to the event. It is possible to purchase tickets at the gate for general admission. Hospitality, camping and other ticket types are not available at the gate.

Parking is available in the North Car Park off Ingliston Road. Follow local signage.  Car park is £5 (cash only). Postcode: EH28 8NB

The Ingliston Revival has a no smoking policy. We do however have specific outside smoking areas for those wishing to smoke.

For Safety, smoking is not allowed in any of the marquees, structures, camp site or around any of the vehicles.

Visitors who wish to smoke or vape are asked to respect others by refraining from smoking in busy areas, around children or around food.

The Ingliston Revival is a family event and there are some precautions you may wish to take to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for you all.

The sprint & other track activity will feature cars which are very loud. If you are intent on watching these from close quarters we would recommend using ear protection on children for their own comfort.

Parking is provided at the Royal Highland Centre North Car Park, which is immediately adjacent the main entrance to the event.

Note that parking is £5 cash levied by the venue.

There are many good public transport links to Edinburgh airport which is about a mile from the event. See the getting here page.

We are also operating a vintage shuttle bus from Edinburgh on a 20 minute frequency. This bus operates from Haymarket train station, stopping at Corstorphine Glebe Road bus stop and the main entrance of the event.

There are many places to view the action:

The track paddock, where competing cars are prepared is a bustling area. The public are welcome in the paddock, but please be considerate to the owners and teams working on the cars and always think safety first as cars will be moving in this area.

The grandstands offer a great view over the competition part of the track and are located beyond the food & bar area. These offer plenty of seats (600 in total) and are available to all ticket holders.

The hospitality area is located immediately adjacent the track near the hairpin and is raised to offer a great vista over the site.

It is also possible to view the action from around the event arena.

We request that you do not bring alcohol to the event and no glass containers.

We offer a great selection of food and drinks from high-quality independent food outlets and you can also pre-book a luxury picnic hamper.

Other food and confectionery (and of course popcorn for the cinema) is available.

If you have lost your property, please report this to the event staff (AKA Ingliston Angels). They will be happy to check the central lost property office at the event.

Inside the fun pack that is provided to children is a blank wrist band that you can write your phone number on. In the event of a child being lost, the event staff (AKA Ingliston Angels) will phone the number of the wristband to help re-patriate your children.

All rides in the vintage fun fair are FREE of charge
