How do I receive advance ticket orders?

Tickets are emailed out to you upon confirmation of payment. Please check your junk or spam folder just in case. If you have not received your ticket please contact our team at or call our helpline on 07375 554420. If you haven’t received your tickets and you’re leaving for the event, don’t panic! We have a ticket helpdesk by the ticket booths at the main entrance.

Is there a public car park?

There is a public car park free of charge.  There is a disabled parking area, please show your blue badge to the marshals.

Do you offer a disability discount? 

As part of our commitment to make the Leicestershire Motor Pageant accessible to all we will provide those disabled ticket holders that require full time assistance with 1 free ticket for a partner, accompanying friend or personal assistant (PA). You will need to provide a copy of your most recent PIP form (or equivalent - a blue badge is not accepted as proof) showing your current entitlement and your ‘blue badge’ if car parking is required. On arrival at the show please liaise with the staff on the gates when presenting your entry ticket.

If it is a child aged 15 or under that requires assistance and you can provide proof of PIP or DLA then the adult will pay for entry and the child will receive the free ticket - this is because no child aged 15 or under can attend the event without an adult whether they require full time assistance or not. 

Are there public toilets on site?

There are public toilets including accessible toilets on site which are clearly marked on the event map, or you can ask any steward to give you directions. 

Is there a cash point on site?

There is no cash point on site. Cash back can be obtained from the main public entry gate (a fee will apply).

Are dogs allowed into the show? 

Dogs are allowed on the show site but must be kept on a lead. You must clean up after your dog.
