The Goodwood Revival

The Goodwood Revival is the celebration of motor racing in the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's. It's the only historic race meeting to be staged entirely in period dress! The Revival was first opened in 1998 when the Earl of March drove the famous Bristol 400 around the circuit. The circuit was opened by his grandfather, the 9th Duke of Richmond, 50 years prior to this. The historic event has now become one of the worlds most celebrated historic motor racing events. Racing fans come from all over the country and the world to soak up the uniquely amazing atmosphere!

What to Wear

Most visitors wear appropriate period clothing at the event. So why not get involved?!

Tweed, tweed and tweed!

Tweed will always be a winner at this event. Ranging from tweed jackets, tweed flat caps, tweed suits and tweed ties. You'll be fitting into the 1950's atmosphere nicely!


As well as the tweed tie, pocket squares and lapel tins can also make a big impact on your Revival outfit. Add a bit of colour to all that tweed with our Green Flower Lapel Pin or our Purple Paisley Pocket Square.


A classic look is the suit – which would typically be made from tweed. Think along the lines of muted colours, such as dark brown, grey or navy. Double-breasted blazers are a nice touch as well, as they rose to fame in the 1940's. Pair with single-pleated tweed trousers to ensure a winning look!
