Ingham made his debut in Manchester with the Library Theatre Company, and then he moved to London's Old Vic. He also performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mermaid Theatre Company and Royal National Theatre.

In 1971, Ingham took the leading role in the series Hine, as an unscrupulous arms dealer. Sir John Gielgud gave him his Broadway debut and he subsequently played in many Broadway musicals, including Copperfield on Broadway, and opposite Angela Lansbury in the London production of Gypsy: A Musical Fable in 1973. When the production transferred to Broadway, Ingham did not remain with the show. He was acclaimed for his performance as King Pellinore in the 1981-82 revival of Camelot starring Richard Harris. In 1986, he voiced Basil of Baker Street, the lead character of Disney's The Great Mouse Detective.
In 1991-92, Bingham was in the final cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love, opposite Sarah Brightman on Broadway. His last Broadway outing was in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde as Sir Danvers Carew. Ingham opened the show in 1997 and remained with it for four years until closing in January 2001.
