To help you enjoy the day, take a look at the most frequently asked questions. If you require further assistance, just email email@example.com – we’re always happy to help.
Pre-booking has closed. You can still turn up on the day and pay at the gate. The pay on the day price will be £15.00, per vehicle. Cash is preferable although we will be able to take card payments too. Please note that every ticket bought for Festival of the Dead is contributing to our chosen charity, Mission Motorsport.
If your vehicle is not listed but the manufacturer HAS ceased production, please select the ‘Other Not Listed’ option at the bottom of the list.
If your vehicle is not eligible for the show and you share our appreciation for classic marques no longer manufactured, you are still welcome to visit the show for a great day out and to see the amazing selection of cars on show. To purchase a ticket for non-eligible vehicles, please select ‘Non Eligible Vehicle (current manufacturer)’ from the drop-down list of vehicles. Non-eligible vehicles will be parked in their own space with other similar cars away from the main show area.

Children are our future classic car owners, and we believe they should be encouraged. But if your little ones would like to take a break from looking at the cars, Burghley House has a new Hide & Secrets Adventure Play area.
We consider our pets to be part of our families too. Well behaved dogs are welcome but please keep them on a lead at all times as there are deer onsite.
Absolutely! To gain half-priced entry to the House and Gardens, please present your show entry ticket at the main Brewhouse Visitor Entrance.
Oh yes! The House also has a great restaurant for sit-down meals or take a stroll along to the Café where you’ll find a tasty selection of refreshments and light lunches. There’ll also be a coffee wagon on the main show field, and if it is a hot day (which of course we hope it will be!), the delicious ice creams will be available from the Orangery and Garden Cafe.
Yes. We hope that you won’t need it, but if you do require assistance, the wonderful people from St. John Ambulance will be onsite.
