Extravaganza Highlights  Include:

Vintage Displays

Vintage displays of nearly 1000 classic cars from pre and post war, including Classic American cars, plus literally hundreds of motorbikes and scooters, bicycles from the early 1900s to the modern era, full size and miniature traction engines and steam rollers, stationary engines, model engineering, great displays of  buses and coaches (some of which you can ride on around the site!), military vehicles,  emergency and commercial vehicles, industrial trucks and vintage caravans. 

Live Arenas

Two live arenas with live commentary to non-stop parades and demonstrations.
The Alec Tanner Arena showcases classic vehicles from across the ages on two and four wheels.
The Steam Playpen does exactly what it says on the tin, steam engines at play showcasing a wide variety of steam power with accompanying commentary.

Vintage Fun Fair

All the fun of the fair including steam powered Gallopers, Electric Yachts, Big Wheel, Waltzer and traditional “Penny Arcade” side shows.  Ride on Chuffy The Train around the show.

Countryside and Animal Arenas

From ferret racing, rare breeds, shire horses and horse-logging to beehive-making – it’s all here among the rural displays and educational demonstrations. The popular dog show will make its return, with all money raised going to Teckels animal shelter – and with 2024 being the International Year of Camelids, ‘Camels through the Ages’ will be making its event debut. This entertaining show features fabulous costumes and informative commentary, to provide an insight into the long history of camel use and culture!
