What can I bring into the event?

Licensing laws mean it is not allowed to bring your own alcohol to the event and the police and stewards will monitor this.

You are more than welcome to bring your own food to the event if you wish, although, there is a range of caterers onsite if you prefer someone else to do the catering!

Dogs are welcome in the stadium although we do ask that they are kept under the supervision of an adult and are on their lead at all times. You must also have the means of clearing up after them.

It is worth bearing in mind that the event can be very busy, very noisy and (sometimes) hot. If your dog is uncomfortable or not used to such surroundings, they may be happier at home.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please e-mail any questions to info@cowalgathering.com

What's the refund policy?

All tickets for the Cowal Gathering are non refundable.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes.
