+ How do I get there?

Rail:
Party at the Palace is only 10 minutes walk from Linlithgow rail Station. Regular services run on the Edinburgh to Glasgow mainline via Falkirk High as well as services to Dunblane via Stirling and connections north.

Bus:
We have teamed up with concert travel specialists Happy Bus to provide coach travel. There will be coaches running from a number of locations including Glasgow, Stirling, Falkirk, Fife, Perth and Edinburgh. The Happybus prices are highly competitive with rail so if you had been planning to come by train please consider getting one of these coaches which depart from near the train stations. These buses must be booked in advance HERE.

Car:

There is ample parking at PATP so we would urge you to use the designated car parks shown on the map below and follow directions from our event stewards.
While we have capacity for over 1,000 cars, we would ask you to consider car sharing. It’s eco friendly, better value, and you might meet some new friends. Check who’s going and where they are coming from at HERE.

The speed limit around the parking areas is 5mph and must be observed.

Getting dropped off / picked up:
If you are being dropped off by car, taxi/private hire or mini-bus, we recommend the lay by on Blackness Road. This is a drop off point only and cars must not wait or park here. The pick up point after the event is the car park to the rear of Tesco. Taxis and cars can wait here safely without blocking the roads around the event.

Scheduled Bus Service:
These buses will leave from their normal departure points on the specified bus schedules shown HERE.  Extra buses are being put on to Falkirk and Edinburgh by Firstbus on the 38 route but get to the stop in plenty of time as they will be busy.

Taxis:
Local taxi companies have been made aware of the event and will be operating from the normal taxi stance in Linlithgow on the High Street outside The Victoria Hall. It would be advisable to pre-book. A list of local taxi operators can be found HERE

When You Leave:

We are keen for everyone to enjoy Party at The Palace and we want to get you all home safely. Your patience on leaving the site is vital to the safety and well being of all those attending the event. Please take your time, follow instructions from stewards and keep to paths and pavements.  Be aware of cars leaving the carpark and drop off points.

+ What time does the party kick off at?
Gates open 12:30pm. First act 1.00pm. Last act on stage 8.50pm. Finishes 10:30pm. Times are approximate.
+ Can I give or sell my tickets to someone else?
Yes. But please seek advice on the various safe and ethical ways of disposing of unwanted tickets and acquiring them.
+ Disability Information

For disability information please email us but we will update this section once we have further and more exact site details. Certainly we will look forward to welcoming one and all!

+ I'm hungry what is there too eat?

We are delighted to be able to offer a large range of locally sourced, freshly prepared food and covering all dietary requirements. Please note that you can’t bring food or drink into the event; thank you.

+ Is there good mobile coverage?
Is there mobile coverage at the site? Yes. There is good coverage across all networks.
+ Is the site suitable for wheelchairs and buggies?
Party at The Palace takes place on a grass field which includes an incline. The terrain may not be suitable for all types of buggy or wheelchair but our stewards are there to help and assist where possible. Loos for people with disabilities and baby changing facilities are available on site.
+ Are camping chairs allowed?
While many find it comfortable and convenient taking in a small folding chair to sit on, they are deemed an inconvenience by others. To strike a balance, PATP does allow people to bring in camping chairs however they will not be allowed to be positioned directly in front of the stage. There will be a ‘chair free zone’ in a stewarded area around 50 metres from the stage. There is a very large area beyond that in which you are welcome to ‘park’ your seating for the whole day and you can then of course move closer to the stage when you fancy getting into the thick of it and retiring back to your seats again – just like at the dancin! We would also ask you to think of the environment and take your chairs home with you”
+ For your safety!

Following advice from Police Scotland and in line with other music events this summer, Party at The Palace are obliged to pass on the following information.
In light of recent events, there will be an increased security and police presence at this years Party at The Palace. All customers and belongings may be subjected to searches. We would ask therefor that you only bring essentials to the event arena with a reminder that no food or drink can be brought into the event. Those caught in possession of any restricted item will have the item confiscated and may be refused entry. In addition we would ask you to consider fellow revellers; more bags mean more searches meaning larger queues. We will operate a fast track queue system for those without bags to enter quicker.

Small camping chairs will still be allowed in, however they will not be allowed to be positioned in the zone directly between the stage and mixing position. There will be an additional large screen and designated area for those who wish to have more space around them while still enjoying the event.

Please do not leave items unattended at any time and you see anything suspicious, please alert a member of security or police.

Your safety is paramount to the success of Party at The Palace. We want you to have a great time and we appreciate your cooperation.
