Longford Revival Festival back bigger and better in 2012

Submitted by on February 21, 2012

The Longford Revival Festival will be back on March 24 and 25, and organisers are promising an even bigger and better event than when it made its highly successful appearance on the calendar last year.

Ticket sales have now opened, with a raft of new attractions and a reduced entry fee sure to add to the events appeal in its second year.

The Festival, which celebrates the era when the northern Tasmania town hosted the world’s biggest names in motorsport back in the 1950s and 1960s, is based on the highly successful Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.

As well as a range of modern, classic and exotic cars tackling the Flying Mile on the old F1 circuit, live music, local fine food and wine, and a host of children’s activities have been design to create a day out for the family.

Daily ticket prices start at $18 for adults, with family passes available for two adults and three children (under 18) from $45. Children under 13 are free if accompanied by a ticketed adult.

A range of ticketing options have been created for the Festival this year, with passes to the Premium Viewing Area offering ultimate spectating of the Flying Mile from new heights will be serviced by a separate enclosure with outdoor seating, bar and toilet facilities. Prices start from $25 for adults.

The event follows a week after the F1 race in Melbourne, with many of the classic cars involved in that event expected to travel to Longford as well.

A new feature of the Festival is the addition of a children’s area, perfect for families with little ones who want to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Flying Mile, while ensuring there is plenty to do for their little racers as well. Jumping castles to motorized jeeps and face painting, its design to make the day fun for the whole family.

Festival gates will open at 9.00am and close at 5.00pm on both Saturday March 24 and Sunday March 25.

Tickets can be purchased from the event website:
