Royal Deeside Motor Show

Dogs are welcomed to the Motor Show, so long as they are kept on a short lead, controlled and any dog mess is cleared at the time by its owners. Oh, and pop past the Organiser Tent with your pooch to say hello. We might even have some little treats for your fur baby :)

The campsite is located in an agricultural field therefore no hard standing is available. 

Unfortunately not. 

Camping at Kincardine Castle and Estate is offered "off grid" meaning there are no shower or power facilities available. Since there is no water and power available nearby, as well as the shower units themselves, we would have needed to ship in water units, heating and power facilities (to heat the water) and the cost of doing this is prohibitive. In fact, we worked out the costs and it would have meant that we would have needed to charge £25 per shower just to cover the costs!

Where cash payment is the only option, exhibitors who are commercially trading shall be encouraged to use separate gloves for cash/goods. However, it is important to remember that sanitising cash exchanges is probably more effective than wearing gloves, due to the risk of bacterial exchange from gloves.

In addition, exhibitors will be advised to consider additional measures e.g. goods transfer station where produce/payment can be exchanged with minimum contact, and ‘cash transfer boxes’ to avoid cash being handed directly from a customer to an exhibitor.

Yes, we are offering concession tickets.
There are no set rules on age for concessions. Rules vary and mean different things for different events as the decision is up to each event organiser. In Scotland, those who are 60 years old and over are welcome to receive their free bus pass, however technically you do not reach State Pension Age until 65, and soon 66!
Our policy for concession tickets to Royal Deeside Motor Show is - children 8 years old to 16 years old, those 65 years old and over and disabled and their escorts. Just a wee reminder that children under 8 years old go free and don’t require a ticket.

Food - Visitors to the Motor Show can consume food that they purchase at the event.

Alcohol - It is stictly prohibited for visitors to bring their own alcohol to the event. Consumers must be made aware that any off sales sealed bottles of alcohol is strictly prohibited to be opened or drunk on site. On sales alcohol must only be purchased and consumed from licensed vendors. Note that exhibitors reserve the right to limit or refuse any alcohol. 

Note also that food and drink exhibitors handing out samples will be doing this from behind the stall, to mitigate any potential COVID-transmission. 



Any trader requesting to stay on their stand may only be allowed by special permission in advance of the event by both Kincardine Castle and Estate and the Royal Deeside Motor Show event organisers. This may be permitted for ONLY traders/catering vendors and not for showcase exhibitors.

The committee's decision is to allow (with permission) traders only, as it is common for traders to be permitted to stay overnight beside their stand. Not only does this reduce the risk of stock being stolen it also acts as an additional security measure and as a backup to the site security. Ideally only those with easy steal items should camp beside their pitch including tools, clothing, etc. Traders with larger displays who are able to lock their stand, for example, a show trailer, are requested to stay in the designated campsite area.

Any camping must be either in an existing gazebo or behind trader displays. There must be NO clearly visible tents, caravans, or motorhomes on trader stands therefore they must be positioned at the back of the stand with a trailer or gazebo in front. There is an exception to traders who will be using their caravans/motorhomes to form part of the display. 

Wristbands will be issued by the campsite duty manager on arrival and these wristbands MUST be worn at all times for anyone entering the campsite.

However, any Commercial Exhibitor can only do this in the International Street Food and Drink Zone, and be displaying a disclaimer notice where drinks and/or food is served informing consumers that hot stuffs can scald.
